Aunt Linda's Cole Slaw

The recipe is often referred to as North Carolina Cole Slaw. You could of course substitute the name of your state or do as I did and name it after a favorite relative OR you can make up a name :)

According to our daughter Leaa, this cole slaw tastes just like her Aunt Linda's. I don't know if this is how Aunt Linda makes her tasty cole slaw but I do know Aunt Linda cooks very, very well!
So, from this day hence, it shall be Aunt Linda's Cole Slaw...

If you are looking for a vinegar based cole slaw without mayo, look no further :)

Aunt Linda's Cole Slaw


* 1 medium to large head of fresh cabbage; chopped or shredded
* 1 medium
onion; diced

green bell pepper; diced
* 1/2 cup vinegar
* 1/2 cup sugar
