I have recently shared a series of dessert recipes, so I promise the next few recipes will contain vegetables! My family has accused me of trying to make them diabetic one dessert at a time. So here’s a recipe with fresh cabbage and bell peppers. It’s delicious and reminds me of my Grandma. This is one of her classic recipes. She called it “9-Day Slaw.” It’ll last nine days in the refrigerator, if it doesn’t get gobbled up first. This slaw has no mayo- it’s light, delicious and perfect for a summer gathering. I recently made it for a family reunion and I’ve been promising to share it for a few weeks now. So here it is, finally…..
Ingredients: (I doubled this recipe to feed 30)
1 head of cabbage, shredded
1 yellow onion, diced
1 yellow or orange bell pepper, diced (I like to use both.)
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. prepared mustard
1 cup of vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. celery seed
1 Tbsp. Salt
1 cup white vinegar
1.) Shred the cabbage, dice the onion and bell pepper and place in a large bowl or container.
2.) Mix the sugars, mustard, oil celery seed and vinegar in a large saucepan and heat to a boil. Pour the heated mixture over the shredded cabbage mixture.
3.) Refrigerate for at least six hours or overnight. Enjoy!
