Sweet Coleslaw

This is a very basic and simple coleslaw. I am really trying to branch out and make vegetable dishes :) Most everyone liked it, I would encourage you to add a little sugar at a time until you attain your perfect level of sweetness because the whole amount called for in this recipe may be too sweet for some. I took out about a cup of the prepared coleslaw mix and added in about a cup of chopped red cabbage to add some color.

1 16oz. bag coleslaw mix
2 Tbs. diced onion
2/3 c. Miracle Whip or Mayo
3 Tbs. vegetable oil
1/2 c. white sugar (start with 1/4 c. and add a little more at a time to suit your taste)
1 Tbs. white vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp poppy seeds

Combine the coleslaw mix and the onion in a bowl. Whisk together remaining ingredients, pour over coleslaw and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate two hours before serving.
