Grandma Joan's Coleslaw...

1 head cabbage (small to medium)
2 large carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced (optional)
1 green bell pepper, diced (optional)
1 cup sugar
1 cup white vinegar
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp salt
1 tsp course-ground black pepper

Chop and dice all vegetables and place in large non-reactive bowl (stainless steel or glass).  In large microwave-safe bowl, combine sugar, vinegar and next 4 ingredients. Stir to combine and microwave on high until mixture almost boils, about 2 minutes.  Stir and allow to cool to room temperature.  Once cooled, stir sugar/vinegar mixture into veggies and toss to thoroughly combine. Chill, covered in a refrigerator several hours.  Makes approx. 4 cups of coleslaw.

May add mayonnaise if desired once cole slaw is chilled. Serve with slotted spoon!  Delicious!
