Crisp Refrigerator Slaw

David Brandon


A dear friend made this for years
at family get togethers.Everyone
aways loved it even though she would make it a little on the hot side.I think it goes with almost anything.It has a little salty,
vinegary,krauty,spicey taste.It
keeps in least a month.
Try it!
