This is served at most restaurants in the Pennsylvania Dutch area. It's really good! Vegetables should be chopped very fine. Prep time is based on using my food prossessor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve the sugar and salt in the vinegar and pour over the cabbage and peppers.
  2. Taste for seasoning and add more if desired.
  3. Add celery seed last.

I enjoy trying different varieties of slaw & this one hit the mark. I added 1/4 cup of purple onion and shredded all of the veggies. We enjoyed the celery seed flavor in this. Made for Let's P-A-R-T-Y!

Great slaw recipe,keen5! I used the ready-bagged Dole cole slaw mixture and used double the amount of finely diced red and green peppers cuz there was more than 3 c. cabbage. I also added about 1/2 finely diced onion ( personal preferance) and Splenda rather than sugar.This seems to keep better than a mayonnaise dresssed slaw, not that there was much left over!:) Thanks for sharing this!
