Apple Cider Coleslaw

Coleslaw From the Dutch koolsla, meaning "cabbage salad" - kool ("cabbage") plus sla ("salad"). Coleslaw is a salad of shredded red or white cabbage mixed with a mayonnaise, vinaigrette or other type of dressing. Other ingredients such as chopped onion, celery, sweet green or red pepper, pickles, bacon or herbs may be added. There are probably as many variations of coleslaw as there are cooks.

1 Head of Cabbage, shredded
1 Medium Onion, sliced
1/2 C. Apple Cider Vinegar
3/4 C. Sugar
3/4 C. Olive Oil
1 Tbsp. Salt
1 Tbsp. Pepper

Make a dressing by incorporating the vinegar, sugar, oil, salt, and pepper. Toss the cabbage and onion in the dressing to coat. For best results, let sit in the refrigerator over-night to absorb much of the liquid. The following day, the cabbage will be cool, crisp, and tangy! This recipe easily feeds eight people.
