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.

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! Read More

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! Read More

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.
