Zesty Vinegar Coleslaw

Prep time 20 mins
Chill time 8 hrs
Yield Makes 7 cups
The neat thing about adding hot salad dressing to shredded cabbage is that it wilts the greens just slightly for a wonderfully tender-crunchy texture. The dressing combines sugar, oil, and cider vinegar with pungent turmeric to put a spunky and colorful kick into an old picnic favorite.Turmeric adds a pungent flavor and a deep yellow color. It can be found in the spice section of your grocery store.

  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 large green cabbage, chopped
  • 1 medium-size green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 (4-ounce) jar diced pimiento, drained
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (optional)
