Contributed by: Esther Jean LaFerney (Crockett) AKA Mom

  • 1/2 to 1/3 Head of cabbage – Shredded fine
  • 1/3 Medium mild onion – Chopped fine
  • 1/3 of a green sweet Pepper – Chopped fine


  • 1/2 C. real Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. Lemon juice or 1 Tbsp. Vinegar
  • 1/4 C. Milk
  • 1 Tbsp. Sugar or Sugar substitute
  • 1 Tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. Pepper

    Make the dressing by slowly adding one ingredient at a time in order listed while stirring. Mix thoroughly until smooth before adding next ingredient. Add dressing to chopped slaw vegetables.

    Variation: Substitute Miracle whip salad dressing (or equivalent brand) for real mayonnaise and lemon juice/vinegar. I.E., if you use salad dressing, don’t include either lemon juice or vinegar.
