Lighter Cole Slaw

I don't know that there is anything really unique about this coleslaw recipe that I came up with, but it's a great alternative to the regular old slaw recipe. It's still sweet and tangy like the original, but it's lighter and it can be outside without worrying about it being in the heat.

1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar (you could use apple cider vinegar too)
1/2 cup oil (I used canola)
about 2.5 tablespoons sugar
pepper to taste and salt if you like
about 1 tablespoon poppy seeds

1 bag shredded cabbage and carrots

whisk together the top ingredients and pour over the cabbage and carrots. Mix well.

*if you like more tang you can up the vinegar and canola to 1/3 cups
