Vernell's Slaw

Vernell's Slaw
  • 1 large head cabbage, cored and shredded
  • 3/4 cup white sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place the shredded cabbage into a large glass baking dish or other glass dish. Do not use metal or plastic. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of white sugar and the salt.
  2. In a separate microwave safe bowl, combine the remaining sugar, oil, vinegar, mustard, celery seed and pepper. Stir to blend in the sugar, then heat until boiling in the microwave, about 3 minutes. Immediately, but carefully pour the boiling mixture over the cabbage. Toss with a wooden or plastic utensil to evenly coat the cabbage.
  3. Let stand out on the counter for several hours, stirring occasionally. Cover and refrigerate. Toss before serving, and serve with a slotted spoon.
