Storage Food Recipe - Southern Style Cole Slaw

Here is one of Mrs. RW’s recipes for cole slaw. This is a quick and simple recipe that you can fix ahead of time for lunch or dinner. The fifty pounds of cabbage I recently brought home doesn’t last long around our place with the way Mrs. RW cooks.

1 Large Head of Cabbage (shredded)

1/2 Large White Onion (chopped)

1 Green Bell Pepper (chopped and seeds removed)

1 Cup of Sugar (may use less as an option)

1 Cup of Oil

1 Cup of Vinegar

Combine the cabbage, onion and bell peppers in a large glass bowl. Combine the sugar with the oil and vinegar and pour over salad mixture. DO NOT STIR. DO NOT ADD SALT. Place in refrigerator for several hours or overnight and it's ready to eat. It's great with smoked brisket.

I personally insure that it has a very short shelf life. I try to eat as much as I can!

Staying above the water line!

I'm pretty much a mustard fan myself. Ever notice that when they make a hot dog with sauer kraut they use mustard and NOT mayo?

The Mrs. says thanks to your MRS. She even gave me another recipe for a kraut dish that's even easier and tastes just as good (ate a whole mess of it tonight!).

Thanks.
