Refrigerator slaw

2-3 bags angel hair slaw or regular cole slaw mix  (you can also shred a head of cabbage with a food processor but the bag stuff is so easy)
1 medium onion sliced thin with a food processor
1 large green pepper sliced thin in a food processor
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white vinegar
1 tbs. dry mustard
1 tsp. celery seed
1 tsp. salt

Place cabbage, sliced onion and sliced pepper in a bowl.
In a medium saucepan, bring the rest of the ingredients to a boil.  Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Remove from heat and allow to cool 10 minutes.  Pour hot mixture over cabbage in bowl.  MIx well.  Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.  Will keep for 7 days in the refrigerator.  I like to add about half a bag of a third bag of  angel hair slaw to the bowl and mix in about an hour before serving.  It adds extra crunch. I do not recommend using the slaw mix with the carrots and/or red cabbage.  It gives the slaw a funky taste.  Just use regular cabbage or angel hair slaw in the bags.
