James Beard's Horseradish Coleslaw

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Lennie

I have not tried this recipe from The James Beard Cook Book, a book I bought at a yard sale. But a previous owner of the book sure did; the book often opens automatically onto this spattered page.

I usually always like Jim Beard's recipes and this was no exception. I cut the recipe in half because I think that 2 lbs of cabbage is way too much for just 6 people. I also added more horseradish...more than twice as much...since we like it sharp and spicy. I suppose the brand that you use will determine how much you put in the recipe to get it right. I hope you've tried this by now Lennie and enjoyed it as much as we did.
