TRIED 'N' TRUE: Simple Cabbage Slaw also good with extras from garden

Special to the Tribune-Star

---- — When the garden was in full swing this year, we had cabbage. I fried it, boiled it and made slaw with it — anything I could think of. A good friend of mine, Reta Bunpus, gave me this recipe from her son, Steve. He is like his other brother, Bob. They like to try different recipes. This is so simple. As most of you know I always make the recipe like it is written then I try different vegetables. It is so good like it is written, but I had a lot of peppers (green onions, radishes, etc.) that I used too. It doesn’t change the sauce on it, but it is so good with extras. Thanks, Reta and Steve.
