Captain D's Cole Slaw

1 medium sized head cabbage chopped fine
2 large carrots chopped
2 tablespoons white onion chopped fine
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt or 1 1/2 teaspoons celery salt and omit celery seed
1/2 teaspoon celery seed

Chop cabbage, celery, and onions and place into a large bowl. In a small bowl combine mayonnaise, distilled vinegar, sugar, salt, and celery seed. Whisk dressing together and drizzle over the chopped vegetables. Stir to combine dressing and vegetables until the cabbage is well coated. This recipe is best when allowed to rest in a covered dish in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

You can use either celery salt, or salt and celery seed. I personally like the flavor of the salt and celery seed, because the flavor is slightly more rich this way.

You just can’t hardly beat a good slaw. I fix it several different ways…one of my favorite recipes was my Grandmothers which called for “heavy cream”.
