Cheesy Veggie Slaw

This is the only coleslaw I like. I'll eat other kinds if that's what I'm served, but this kind is really good. It's a mix-n-match salad that's pretty and tasty, and has the unexpected twist of having cheese in it.

So, start with 1 small head of cabbage, chopped fine or shredded
Then choose two or three of the following raw vegetables and chop them up: zucchini, cucumber, green pepper, red pepper, yellow pepper, orange pepper, stalk of broccoli, carrot.
Dice or shred 1-2 cups of cheese: cheddar, mozzarella, monterey jack, or swiss.
It's nice to choose contrasting colors of veggies and cheese, if you can. It makes the slaw look like edible confetti.
(optional: green or black olives.)

Mix up the dressing :

1 cup Miracle Whip
2 TB sugar
2 TB vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp mustard (dry, yellow, dijon, spicy-- whatever suits your fancy)

Stir the veggies and the dressing together and serve.
