Herman's Cole Slaw


1 head cabbage, thinly sliced

2 onions, thinly sliced

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

1 cup cider vinegar

1 teaspoon dry mustard

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon celery seed

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 - 3/4 cup vegetable oil

2 bottles of sliced pimentos


Shred cabbage & onions. Cover with the 1/2 cup sugar. Set aside for about one hour. Boil vinegar, 2 Tbsp sugar, mustard, salt, and celery seed; pour over cabbage while hot. Add grated diced pimientos. Add garlic & salad oil. Let set 24 hours; serve cold. It is quite tart, so add sugar "to taste". Will keep in refrigerator for weeks.
