christine wenger stories with a smile



Dick Green is a very sweet guy that I used to work with when I was a tour guide in Philly. He made this for a work party, and I just had to have the recipe. I have to confess that I dislike coleslaw, but I love making it, and everyone tells me that this coleslaw recipe is the best.

Medium head of shredded green cabbage (can mix in some red cabbage for color)

  • 1 cup shredded carrots (about 2-3)
  • 1 ½ cups mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • ¼ tsp. celery seed (or oregano)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper

Add: 1 small grated onion (if you desire)

In a large bowl, combine ingredients then mix in cabbage and carrots. Cover and chill 2-3 hours before serving.
