Brookville Sweet & Sour Coleslaw

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by winkki

From the old Brookville Hotel restaurant in Kansas, famous for their fried chicken, slaw, and creamed corn, all served family style. (The creamed corn is Mom's Famous Crock Pot Cream Corn) This was the recipe that finally got me to eat cole slaw; everything else on their table was so good I decided to take a chance and was hooked forever! Cook time does not include initial chilling of cabbage & total servings vary depending on serving size.

I am also a native Kansan and was a friend of the Martin's late daughter, Brandy. This recipe brings back memories of good food and friends while growing up. It's the best cole slaw that I have ever eaten and in this day of preshredded cabbage, it is so simple to make. Visit Brookville Hotel to read about the history of the Brookville Hotel (old and new) and to see pictures of each of their unique dining rooms.
