My grandma Betty makes the best coleslaw! Hands down. For nearly every holiday our family spends together, my grandma makes her delicious coleslaw and we all scarf it down. She used to even make me a "special" bowl, without onions or peppers. The recipe is for a fairly traditional coleslaw and it is especially good if you make it a few hours or a day ahead of time. Thanks to Grandma for sharing this yummy salad with us! Now you can enjoy it too!
1 head cabbage, grated
2 stalks of celery, chopped small
1/2 red pepper, chopped small (we used a whole pepper)
1/2 onion, chopped small
2 carrots, grated
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of Best Foods real mayonaise (this is apparently the secret!)
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
A little bit of milk to thin consistency
Mix the dressing ingredients together and taste to test the flavour. Pour the dressing over the grated and chopped coleslaw ingredients and let sit for at least two hours. Be sure to mix well.
