Several years ago (4-5 maybe) I found a recipe on this site, and I'm pretty sure it was in this forum, for a coleslaw dressing that had only 4 ingredients...white vinegar, sugar, mayonnaise, and celery seed.  Possibly salt and pepper to taste but that was it.  I can't remember the quantities but those were the only ingredients.  Anybody know which one I'm talking about or know of one like this?
 
Thanks!

You're from GA, you should know this...LOL. That's the base for all Southern Cole Slaw. but it's apple cider vinegar. of course it's slaw, there are not mistakes.  Measurements ha!! I make this everyday, depends on the head size, density, etc. But first salt your cabbage to leach the moisture out, then you wont have watered down slaw. an hour should do any more and you might as well make kraut. Some areas I use more sugar and less vinegar other places items are reversed. adjust for taste and texture

I've experimented with other kinds of vinegar; malt vinegar actually works very well. Also, I always put onion powder in my slaw.
