Amish Overnight Coleslaw

Main photograph of prepared recipe.

The emphasis here is on the veggies and a sharp/sweet flavor, not the usual milky dressing. VERY easy to make, but it has to "steep' overnight.

Additional Notes

I skipped chopping cabbage and carrots by using a pre-shredded coleslaw mix.

A friend of mine makes extra dressing and puts it in a jar with fresh carrots, cauliflower, and onions and leaves them to become yummy pickled veggies!
