Now you may notice that the recipe contains rather a lot of sugar, but trust me, it’s totally needed because it also contains rather a large amount of vinegar. Hence, the sweet and sour. But if you prefer your slaw a little more sour than sweet, just use a bit less sugar.

And actually, the dressing for this recipe is like the kind of brine you would use for a sweet pickle, and this slaw could really be thought of as a pickled cabbage salad. Any way you want to look at it, though, it’s absolutely delicious. For the best results, make it a few hours ahead of time and store it in the fridge until ready to serve.

I used my food processor to shred the cabbage, celery and carrots. if you don’t have one a box grater works well using the smaller holes.  You will want to shred or dice the cabbage, carrots ,celery and green pepper to be fine, just like you would if you were making coleslaw.

There’s a Tablespoon of salt in the dressing, you can adjust it down if you like while you make the dressing and tweak it after you make the Pepper Cabbage and chill it to your taste. Making the dressing is as easy and putting all the dressing ingredients into a medium size bowl and whisking them together until they are well incorporated. Pour the dressing over the shredded vegetables and fold it in to incorporate it.

After the dressing is poured over the vegetables and mixed in, place it in the fridge for a couple hours to chill. The cabbage will still have a slight crispness to it which is very nice, the flavor of the vegetables together in the dressing is wonderful.  Pennsylvania Dutch Pepper Cabbage, it’s “What’s For Dinner?!  and it’s delicious!
