Grandma's Pepper Slaw

Recipe by  

"This is my grandmother's recipe for sweet and sour cabbage slaw that couldn't be simpler to make! My family loves it as a side dish for grilled burgers and hot dogs, but it works equally well in winter time with roast pork, or beef."

This is the exact recipe I was searching for. My Great Grandmother made this and I alway buy it at the PA Dutch Farmer's market. It tasted just like it, thanks for posting.

I used this recipe on top of pulled pork. I liked the combination, my husband didn't, unfortunately. Thank you for submitting this recipe.

I love this recipe but make slightly different. I use 1 bell pepper and add 1 or 2 chopped white onions. I also add vegetable oil. This is a family favorite!

Wonderful in flavor and ease. My youngest son doesn't like the mayo version of slaw so we make both now! Thanks for the recipe!

My family isn't a fan of green bell peppers, so we substituted orange and yellow and it turned out fine. I also totally forgot to season the cabbage with salt (does anyone know why you would do this?) and I used half the sugar. My husband loved it and we used it on pulled pork tacos. Thank you for posting!

A lot of sugar but delicious. I added grated carrot.

As advertised, very simple and delicious. A new staple in our house.

The only thing I did was give a quick rinse after the salting.
