Dad's Coleslaw

2 1/2 tbs sugar
3/4 tsp salt 
1/8 tsp celery seed 
1 tbs lemon juice 
1 tbs vinegar 
two shakes Louisiana hot sauce 
2 tbs vegetable oil
dash of pepper 
2 slices yellow onion, chopped 
5 tbs mayonnaise

In a 2 cup glass measuring cup (or small bowl) add sugar & salt. Add celery seed and crush into sugar & salt with a spoon. Add lemon juice and vinegar and stir until mostly dissolved. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

Pour over a 1 pound bag of coleslaw mix (near the bagged salads in the grocery store) or shredded cabbage. 

At first it looks like there's not enough dressing, but after sitting for about 10 minutes it will be perfect, mix well before serving. Do not mix more than one hour prior to serving or it may become limp.
