Homemade Coleslaw

Cabbage (either bagged or a head of cabbage finely chopped)
1/2 to 1 c mayo
1-2 T sugar (or 1-2 packets of your favorite sweetner)
1/4-1/3 c white vinegar

Chop as much cabbage as you want.  For the dressing, you have to taste as you go.  I like mine less sweet with more of a vinegary taste, but most places make it pretty sweet.  Start by mixing the mayo and 1/4 c vinegar together.  Add 1 T of sugar and mix well.  Taste.  If you want it sweeter, add a little more sugar at a time. If you want it tangier, add vinegar a little at a time.  There's no exact science or recipe to this, I just eye-ball it each time.  But those measurements should give you something to start with.
