Great for picnics and barbecues. For a time-saver, you can buy your cabbage already shredded, just use a 12 oz. bag in place of the half-head.

  1. Using a whisk, mix together mayo, milk, vinegar, mustard, and celery seed.
  2. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Toss cabbage, bell pepper, carrot and onion together in a bowl, and mix together with dressing.
  4. Cover and refrigerate several hours before serving.

Marvelous, although I too leave out the raw onion. If you're pressed for time, you can substitute about 12oz pre-shredded cole-slaw mix from the produce aisle for ALL the vegetables.

Very good, but I think next time I will leave out the onion, as it was a little strong for us!

Excellent recipe! Only change I made was to add some frozen peas. I used the preshredded cole slaw. We loved it! Thanks for posting, Sue L! M. Joan
