Paired with grilled BBQ pork chops, this salad is a tasty Southern-style side.
- 3 pounds green cabbage (cored and shredded)
- 1 green bell pepper (seeded and minced)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
- 3/4 teaspoon celery seed
- 3/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- Toss cabbage and green pepper together in a large bowl. Mix sugar, salt, dry mustard and celery seed in a small saucepan; add vinegar and oil and let come to a boil over moderate heat; stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat; let cool slightly. Pour dressing over cabbage mixture; too well to blend. Cool to room temperature and then cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
