chopped green bell pepper
chopped pimento pepper
This is the recipe that my family calls "freezer slaw". We make it and put it in plastic freezer containers. Tastes just as good months later. Just take it out of the freezer, thaw and serve.
This was OK, but we prefer the creamy slaw. If you don't like the creamy slaw, try this recipe. I do think it could use a bit of garlic powder.
We love this recipe! I make it for my husband and dad who absolutely rave over it! I'm making it right now again for a family function! It's one of the best! By far better than the store bought kind!
Better then creamey slaw
I substituted red pepper for the pimentos. Very delicious. Assemble several hours ahead of serving so the flavors can meld.
I was very worried about the "no oil" in this recipe. I was very tempted to put some in. I am sooooo glad I didn't.My 4 young children and my somewhat picky husband (though you wouldn't be able to tell by looking at him)loved this dressing. I used my own regular coleslaw ingredients, and just used the dressing though, sorry for those of you that don't like the reviews on a changed recipe. Can't wait to eat the rest for lunch, yummo! Resist the temptation to add the oil.
Made this for an Ocktoberfest Party. Everyone seemed to like it, it was all gone at any rate. I liked that it wasn't the creamy sort of coleslaw. I added twice the amount of cabbage and peppers and stuff and still there was a ton of dressing. (Large-ish pool in the bottom of the bowl.) FYI
This reminded me of a slaw called 7 day slaw. My whole family loved it. It was the best ever.
