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.

This is the exact recipe I was searching for. My Great Grandmother made this and I alway buy it at the PA Dutch Farmer's market. It tasted just like it, thanks for posting.

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!

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!
