Country Fresh Coleslaw

February 6, 2015

Author Notes: When I was a little girl, my Great-Great Aunt Fanny used to make this from tomatoes and radishes fresh from her garden--so delicious, with a little snap to it from the purple onions and radish, and good with everything from seafood to grilled steak. You can also make this with the finely minced cabbage-carrot fresh mix of vegies found in many produce departments--this more delicate version is perfect for toppings on burgers, hotdogs and sandwiches.BeijingRose

  1. Mix all ingredients in a large metal bowl, blend well, chill for 2 hours and serve! If you can find the bags of finely chopped cabbage & carrot coleslaw mix in your local produce department, this will produce a more delicate texture, and is perfect for topping hotdogs, hamburgers, fish sandwiches and deli subs.
