Coleslaw with Mustard Dressing

"I ALWAYS marveled at how finely my aunt could chop cabbage, and I loved to watch as it filled her big blue salad bowl. But the best part was when she was ready to add peanuts to this dish. My sister and cousins and I would stand by and 'snitch' a few of those tasty nuts before they got into the salad!"
