My mother-in-law introduced me to this recipe 40 years ago. She was raised in a mennonite community in Ontario Canada, although not a mennonite herself. Can use either fresh cabbage shredded or, bagged shredded cabbage (at least 2 bags)

Waaaay too much vinegar. This was in no way appetizing. Had to throw it out. It had too sour of a taste. I like my slaw creamy so thought the sour cream was an interesting twist. Glad I made it the night before I served it to my company. I would have been mortified to serve this. I'll keep hunting.
