This easy coleslaw is great because it lasts refrigerated so long. The longer you let it marinate, the better it tastes.—Mildred Iglehart, Calhoun, Kentucky

- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup vinegar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil

"This is a wonderful salad. My total sugar was 11-2 cups and l added one finely grated carrot. I'm amazed this has no reviews, 20 years after it was first published. It's a keeper. Janet FE"
