All Purpose Cole Slaw

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by D. Rose

This recipe was given to me by my Great Aunt. The reason I say all purpose is because this is always a side dish at Thanksgiving, and Easter and BBQ's and on Sandwiches etc. etc. It just goes well with a lot and if you love a sweet tasting Cole Slaw, this is definately one to try. The Green Bell Pepper is a must for the unique taste! I always have to double this recipe though for larger crowds!

This made a nice coleslaw. I made up my own mix. I used green cabbage, red cabbage, and carrots. Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice green bell pepper to small bite size bits. Do not put in processor! this will make it too watery! must dice by hand.
  2. In a large bowl, add the cole slaw mix and then diced pepper and blend until well mixed.
  3. Add the milk, white vinegar, sugar & mayo and blend again.
  4. For best results, I keep mine in an airtight container and let it sit in Fridge overnight. Right before serving, it may need a touch more of mayo but you can use your own judgement on that. Also, if it does not seem sweet enough & the cabbage is on a little tangy side, add a little sprinkle more of sugar.
