This recipe comes from a magazine insert (?which one, maybe Woman's Day) back in the 70's sometime. The insert was entitled "All American recipes," and just about all the recipes are good ones. Instead of shredding the cabbage, I put all the veggies in the food processor and used the shredding blade. The veggies come out in little pieces. If you like coleslaw, this is a good recipe; it's tart/sweet. The addition of the other veggies lend some other flavors that are nice. I halved the recipe and had plenty for our Super Bowl Party and had plenty left over. The halved recipe follows:

1/2 head cabbage, shredded
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/3 cup mayo or salad dressing (I used Smart Balance Mayonnaise)
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup grated carrots
1/4 cup diced green pepper

DIRECTIONS: Place shredded cabbage in large bowl; sprinkle with sugar; toss till mixed; cover. Chill 30 minutes.

Mix lemon juice and mayo in small bowl; pour over cabbage. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Add carrots and green pepper; toss to mix well.
