Friday’s Fare: Mennonite Cole Slaw

Every holiday gathering, my father always makes this recipe. It comes from his mother and grandmother and great-grandmother. Growing up Mennonite, he learned that this was a tradition at family gatherings so I, too, have come to expect this at every family gathering. I hope you come to love this recipe, too!

Mennonite Cole Slaw (from my dad)

1 medium head cabbage, finely shredded
1 onion, finely chopped
1 cup white sugar
1 cup vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon mustard

Roasted sweet pepper, finely chopped

Mixed all ingredients together. Best if kept in refrigerator overnight.
