Rainbow Coleslaw

This is an amazingly crunchy 
coleslaw that has a tangy, sweet bite to it!
First off, I've never been a fan of Coleslaw. Coleslaw reminds me of watered-down, mayonnaise covered goo that sinks down into a runny-sauced cabbage.


1 small cabbage, shredded (1 1/2 pounds shredded)
1 medium onion (I use a yellow, or white)
1 Carrot, shredded
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1 small sweet red bell pepper, chopped
1 small sweet yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 C. Sugar
2/3 C. white vinegar
1/2 C. vegetable oil
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. Celery seeds
1/4 tsp. ground mustard

Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl, STIR.
In a saucepan, combine sugar and remaining 6 ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves.

Pour vinegar/sugar mixture over cabbage mixture; TOSS.

Cover and Chill at least 2 hours. (preferably overnight)

Enjoy with a BBQ dinner, or just as a healthy side-dish.
