This is one salad that, if anything, actually improves with age. It travels well from fridge to picnic spot, and since it doesn't contain mayonnaise, it's safe outside even on a hot day.


  • 1/2 small head cabbage, finely shredded

  • 1 carrot, grated

  • 1 green sweet pepper, chopped

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

  • 3 tbsp vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tsp granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp celery seed


  • Combine all the ingredients and toss well to mix. If your child is doing the tossing, I suggest you use a very large bowl. Or keep your broom handy.
