Crunchy Veggie Slaw

Fresh from my kitchen....Crunchy Veggie Slaw

1 lb mixed shredded red and green cabbage
4 - 8 oz shredded carrots
3/4 Cup baby broccoli florets
1/4 Cup roasted sunflower seeds
1 Handful raisins
1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
2 TBSP Milk
2 TBSP Sugar
3 TBSP Vinegar, either white or cider
1 tsp Celery Seed

Mix all veggies, sunflower seeds and raisins together in large bowl.  In separate small bowl, for the dressing, whisk together the mayonnaise, milk, sugar, vinegar and celery seed.  Pour the dressing over the veggie mixture; stir until dressing is evenly distributed and chill for one hour.  Serves 8.....unless you are my family, then it only serves 4. :-)

Tip:  We always have Balsamic Vingar in our home, not so much of the others.  You can substitute with the Balsamic if you like.  Keep in mind the dressing will be brown and not white...still very yummy though.
