Helosie Fast Slaw

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by True Texas

Taken from "Hints From Heloise" in the Star-Telegram newspaper. Sounds great and simply. She says she likes it tangy, so she adds extra apple-cider vinegar or a tsp. of lemon juice. If you want something with a bite, add a dash of hot sauce to the vinegar. This was her mother's recipe and brags you can make in 5 minutes, who doesn't love that?

I was looking for a slaw recipe without mayo. This was perfect! I did mix it up in a bowl. I liked it, the rest of the family were "eh" but they are freaks anyway :) - Candy
