Freezer Slaw, Fay's

As an alternative, let the cabbage slaw stand in the refrigerator for 24 hours before serving, instead of freezing it.

Fay's Freezer Slaw ingredients
1 cup white vinegar
2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp mustard seed
1 large head of cabbage
1 tsp salt
1 carrot
1 sweet bell pepper
1 medium onion

Fay's Freezer Slaw Directions
Prepare dressing
Boil together the vinegar, sugar, and water until the sugar dissolves.

Add the celery seed and mustard seed.  Let mixture cool.

Prepare salad
Shred or chop fine the cabbage. Sprinkle with the salt and let stand one (1) hour. Then, drain cabbage and squeeze out all liquid.

Chop fine or grate the carrot, bell pepper, and onion, and mix with the cabbage.

Pour vinegar mixture over cabbage mixture. Mix well and freeze.

To serve without freezing, let cabbage mixture stand in refrigerator for twenty-four (24) hours.

Fay's Freezer Slaw Notes
  • I recall Fay making this for July 4th festivities.
