Works For Me Wednesday: Creamy Cole Slaw

Today's Works For Me Wednesday is the Summer Recipe Edition.

I'm sharing a quick recipe for cole slaw. It's delicious, cheap and easy to prepare and won't heat up your kitchen. It's a great side dish to many summertime meals, especially here in the South! If you have access to a food processor, this salad can be whipped up in about 10 minutes flat!

I've been making this for our church fellowship and other gatherings this spring and summer and it usually gets eaten right up!

Here's what you do:

Shred a medium sized head of cabbage and pour into a bowl.

Mix dressing ingredients together:

2-3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon celery seed
4 tablespoons oil
1/4 teaspoon onion salt(I use a little garlic powder or omit altogether.)
2 tablespoons vinegar
6 tablespoons mayonnaise

Pour dressing over shredded cabbage and mix. You can chill the salad in the fridge for a little while to let the flavors mingle or serve right away!
