This recipe comes from Mary Connelly Benway, whose mother made it for her brood of 10 children. “My mother has always been, and still is, the best cook I know,” she wrote. “By preparing these favorite dishes in my own kitchen for more than 20 years, I have managed to convince my husband that I am a pretty good cook—a tribute to her.” We love the way this classic coleslaw manages to be sweet, savory, tangy, and creamy all in a single bite.
In a large bowl, toss together cabbage, carrots, and green pepper. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour dressing over vegetables and toss well. Let sit at least 20 minutes before serving.
