My Aunt Loretta made this salad when I was a little girl visiting her home in New Jersey. I always think of her when I make it.

1small onion, grated
1 green pepper, very finely diced
6 stuffed olives, thinly sliced
1/2cup sugar
1cup white vinegar
1tablespoon celery seed
1teaspoon prepared mustard
1/2cup vegetable oil
1teaspoon salt
1/8teaspoon pepper
1tablespoon mustard seed


  1. To prepare salad, place cabbage, onion, green pepper, olives and sugar in a medium-size bowl.
  2. To prepare dressing, combine vinegar, celery seed, mustard, oil, salt, pepper and mustard seed in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 3 minutes. Pour over cabbage mixture, and stir well. Cover and refrigerate 24 hours. Stir again before serving.
