Colorful & Tangy Coleslaw...

I found this coleslaw recipe on All Recipes a few years ago and make this once a week in the summer. It can be made well ahead of company coming and the flavors only get better sitting in the cold fridge. It makes a ton of coleslaw and is so economical to make. I once made this recipe for one of the side dishes for a homeless shelter in San Francisco. We were feeding 60 men. I decided to quadruple the recipe. Now that is a whole lot of coleslaw! Everyone loved it. The men kept asking the director of the shelter when the coleslaw lady was returning. My family can't get enough of this recipe either. So I think it is safe to say that Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw is a winner. The recipe can be found HERE

The only thing I do differently is to add the sugar to the pot with desssing ingredients and let it all boil together. Depending upon how large my cabbage is I often cut the dressing ingredients in half & there is still enough dressing.
