Alabama Hot Slaw
4 cups finely shredded cabbage (1 medium head)
2 stalks celery, finely sliced
1 ½ cups shredded carrots
½ red bell pepper, minced
¼ cup minced sweet or red onion
¼ cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon prepared brown mustard or to taste
¼ cup vegetable oil
Layer the vegetables in a large glass bowl, starting with the cabbage and ending with the onion; do not mix. In a blender or food processor, process the vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, mustard and hot sauce to taste until the sugar is dissolved. Pour evenly over the vegetables but do not mix.
In a heavy skillet, heat the oil until it just begins to smoke. Drizzle the hot oil over the vegetables, but again, do not mix. Let stand for 5 minutes. Toss and serve immediately, serve over your favorite hot dog, or chill and serve cold. Makes 8 servings.
