Recipe: Cabbage Salad Dressing

  •  3/4 c. vinegar
  •  1/2 tsp. mustard, if desired
  •  1/4 c. water
  •  1/2 tsp. salt
  •  2 Tb. butter
  •  3 Tb. sugar
  •  1 Tb. flour

Heat the water and the vinegar; melt the butter in a Saucepan, add to it the flour, mustard, salt, and sugar, stir until well blended, and then pour in the hot liquid. Cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly to prevent the formation of lumps. Pour over the cabbage while hot; allow it to cool and then serve on plates garnished with lettuce.
