Aunt Irene's Coleslaw Dressing

Spring is not far away, so it's time to start thinking about those BBQ favorites.  One of my most recent trips to Canada I was able to get a few favorite recipes from my Aunt Irene.  They have an awesome garden on their farm and she has lots of fantastic recipes that make use of the produce they grow.  The following is her Coleslaw Dressing.  Honestly, this is the best dressing I've ever had.  It really beats the creamy coleslaw you usually find.

1 cup sugar                                       2 Tbsp mustard
1 cup vinegar                                    1 Tbsp salt
2/3 cup salad oil                                1 Tbsp celery seed

Place all ingredients in a Mason jar.  Shake well.  Pour desired amount of dressing over shredded cabbage.  Stir to coat and place in refrigerator until ready to serve.

This recipe will dress about 4 lbs of shredded cabbage, which is probably two large salads.  Store leftover dressing in the refrigerator for up to one month.
