    This is a great recipe from Germany. The dressing is vinegar based and doesn't use oil (or mayonnaise), so it is low in calories, but high in flavour!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 100g caster sugar
    • 100ml cider vinegar
    • 4 tablespoons cold water
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed
    • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
    • 1kg finely sliced cabbage
    • 2 stalks celery, diced
    • 1/2 green capsicum, diced

    Directions
    Preparation:20min  ›  Extra time:12hours chilling  ›  Ready in:12hours20min 

    1. In a jar with lid, combine the sugar, vinegar, water, salt, mustard seed and celery seed. Cover tightly and shake vigorously until sugar is dissolved. Chill dressing for several hours or overnight.
    2. In a large bowl toss together the cabbage, celery, green capsicum and dressing until evenly coated. Cover and chill until serving.

    We love this recipe! I make it for my husband and dad who absolutely rave over it! I'm making it right now again for a family function! It's one of the best! By far better than the store bought kind! - 29 Sep 2008

    Used different ingredients. I substituted red capsicumfor the pimentos. Very delicious. Assemble several hours ahead of serving so the flavours can meld. - 29 Sep 2008
