Suzi’s Vegetable Slaw

Here’s a great little recipe from our own Co-op Member, Susan O’Brien.

I am a cole slaw lover. It reminds me of when I was a youngster and my dad made us homemade cole slaw. I have changed the recipe many times over the years, but what remains the same are the memories of eating it in the home where I grew up. There’s no place like home, as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz would say!  Enjoy.  –Susan–

  • 2 cups Napa cabbage, finely choppedsuz_sla
