I made this with Splenda instead of sugar and added 1/2 cup each: chopped sweet red pepper and chopped green onion. We had it with Calhoun's pork BBQ for a 4th of July picnic. Wow! It was so good and crunchy! Perfect with the BBQ. A 5-star hit for sure!

Would give this 6 *'s if I could. Very fresh. Lots of chopping, but worth it. I'm not very good at measuring "cups" of vegetables--for this recipe I used 1 head of cabbage, 1 small bunch of celery, and 1/2 an onion. We're not big fans of raw onion, so reserved a little bit of bacon grease to cook the onion prior to combining with other ingredients (after draining well). This recipe is a great way to deliciously add cabbage to your diet!!
