My mother gave this recipe to my sister, Sonya quite a few years ago, and Sonnie made coleslaw using the dressing for Aussie’s 18<sup>th</sup> birthday celebrations. The majority of people thought it to be much nicer than the traditional creamy style dressing.


  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • ¾ cup oil
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 1 tbs horseradish cream
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Sprinkle the raw sugar over the salad.
  2. Place remaining ingredients into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Boil for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour over salad, straight away and leave until ready to serve.
  4. Just before serving toss the salad and place into a serving dish.


  • You may need to drain some of the dressing off before serving.
