Sweet Cabbage Salad

I like cabbage salads - and I'm just beginning to try different ones. This one was in Cooking Light, and I changed the sugar to Splenda. We loved it.

Sweet Cabbage Salad
adapted from Cooking Light

6 cups shredded cabbage (about 1/2 head)
1 cup shredded carrot (about 1 medium)
1 cup chopped green bell pepper (about 1 medium)
½ cup chopped red onion
½ cup sugar
½ cup white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dry mustard
½ teaspoon celery seeds
½ teaspoon salt
Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Combine sugar and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Pour vinegar mixture over cabbage mixture, tossing gently to combine. Cover; chill 1 hour. Makes about 8 servings, and the leftovers keep well an extra day.
