Grandma's Best Coleslaw

This simple coleslaw recipe was Grandma's standby. You couldn't have a picnic without it. It was almost always in her refrigerator ready to eat.

She would vary the ingredients a bit depending on what she had on hand. For example, omitting the green pepper, using all red or all green cabbage. But the basic recipe was always the same. And always good.
