Cabbage-Pepper Slaw Fave!

I'm a hard-sell on green peppers. Not much for the flavor, not much for the consistency in any form, but the small pieces of pepper in this recipe give the slaw a nice crisp zing. The dressing is quite tasty but one should probably be careful with the measure of salt and sugar -- the salad dressing mixture I use has plenty of both. My first making of this came out both overly salty and overly sweet. This was remedied some by some dashes of lemon juice.


  • 4 cup cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 2 Tbl sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp celery seed
  • 1 Tbl wine vinegar
  • dash of pepper
  • 1/2 tsp yellow mustard
  • 3/4 cup Italian salad dressing


Add other ingredients to prepared vegetables and toss.
