Hermans was "the" seafood place in Oklahoma City for many years, and they were famous for their cole slaw. This is their recipe, and in my opinion the best in the universe.

HERMAN'S COLE SLAW

1 head of cabbage (approx. 2 pounds), Shredded
1 medium yellow onion
2 medium carrots, grated
1/4 cup sugar, plus one tablespoon
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/3 cup salad oil
1 - 2 cloves garlic (or more, to taste)
1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

Shred cabbage and onion. Mix in bowl with grated carrots. Cover with 1/4 cup of sugar and set aside.
Boil vinegar, 1 tablespoon sugar, mustard, celery seed and garlic. Pour over cabbage while hot. Mix well, then stir in salad oil and salt. Cover and refrigerate overnight and serve cold.

This slaw is good anytime, but is especially good with fish and seafood.
