Mike Kirkpatrick’s Slaw Dressing

by Salad, Sauces & Dressings

Back in the old days, when we were working our way through college, we used to gather at friends’ houses each Friday night for pot luck, music, and good old fashioned adult-dose partying. As Grace Slick used to say, . . . Well, on second thought, maybe I better not go there.

Anyhow, a good friend, Mike Kirkpatrick, had a real love and talent for cooking. This is a recipe he gave us. Mike, wherever you are, my friend, thanks.


1/2 cup white vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 cup salad oil
1/4 cup sugar
1 head cabbage, grated
2 carrots grated


Combine ingredients and bring to a boil. Cook for one minute, then pour over cabbage and carrots. Mix well. Chill for 4 hours.
