Crisp Cole Slaw

We spend the majority of our time out doors in the spring and summer and often are on the lake or out on the patio or porch for meals. One of the things I am always cautious about is the dairy product in the heat, that's one reason I just love this Cole Slaw, no dairy, so we don't have to worry about the heat spoiling the Cole Slaw.  This is a recipe that we have used for years and is in my cookbook Miz Helen's Kitchen Table.

3/4 cup oil
1 cup white vinegar
Alternate layers of cabbage and top with onion rings in about 1 inch layers
Sprinkle salt over each layer
Alternate until all the cabbage and onion are in layers
Drizzle the Agave or sprinkle the sugar over the top layer
