I tasted this recipe many years ago at my best friend's mom's house. I had to have the recipe. She used to make it for wedding showers or other large functions and everyone loved it. It has a wonderful sweet, tangy dressing.
- Combine cabbage, carrots, celery and onion flakes in a large bowl.
- Combine remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and stir until sugar is dissolved.
- Pour dressing over cabbage mixture.
- Let sit for several hours or overnight before serving.
