If you are like my family, Independence day is spent with friends and family and lots of good food.....with the meats grilled out on the grill. Someone always brings a great potato salad and there is always a big pot of red beans and homemade breads. We all know of the wonderful desserts waiting to be finished off. I always like a cool vegetable salad of some kind also This coleslaw is so delicious and easy to make. A cool side for a hot afternoon of good fun! Enjoy
1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 medium head cabbage, finely shredded or chopped (4 cups)
1 small carrot, shredded (1/2 cup)
1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
Mix all ingredients except cabbage, carrot and onion in large glass or plastic bowl. Add remaining ingredients; toss until evenly coated.
Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors. Cover and refrigerate any remaining salad.
