Grandma's Cole Slaw

How could I not have posted this before?

First the "official" recipe:

  • 7/8 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c vinegar (calls for "tarragon or other")
  • 1/4 c salad oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 head of shredded cabbage

Now the version I usually make:

  • half of the dressing recipe (cut cabbage, especially when shredded, adds liquid to the recipe and a full batch of dressing is always too much, imo)
  • using miracle whip
  • and plain, white vinegar
  • skip the onion
  • medium/small head of cabbage
  • Quite often I don't measure very carefully - it's a pretty forgiving recipe.
  • It was originally from the A & W or Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Staples and my recipe card calls it Ozzie's Cole Slaw.  (Ozzie Anglin? was the restaurant owner.)
  • It was cut down from a huge restaurant recipe, hence the 7/8 cup measurement.
  • If you use some red cabbage, add it at the last minute or the dressing will get all pink.
