This recipe is easily doubled. If you are having more than 4 people, or if you want leftovers, I suggest you double all the ingredients.
I bag cole slaw mix
3 T. granulated sugar
3 T. white vinegar
2 T. vegetable oil (don't use olive oil)
salt and pepper
Rinse the bag of cole slaw mix and drain. (Please rinse the bagged vegetables that you buy, this is a pet peeve of mine. They really aren't all that clean even if they say they are washed) Add the sugar, vinegar, oil, a pinch of salt and pepper (to taste) and toss. You can serve it immediately, but it tastes better if it is allowed to sit for a little while. It will "shrink" a bit as it marinates.
My poor cookbook has seen better days, but it still gets pulled out of the cabinet when I need a basic recipe. It may say "new" but it is circa 1970's. I made sure my daughter had her own copy when she left home.
