Creamy Coleslaw

Need a side to go with that yummy grilled chicken?  Once again, before it gets too chilly, I wanted to put up one of my favorite summery bbq side dishes.  Coleslaw.  I've tried many a coleslaw recipe and this one is definitely a winner.  It is full of flavor and really easy to whip up.  You need to let it sit at least an hour, but you could easily make it the morning of or even the night before your dinner.  Enjoy!

Creamy Coleslaw

Makes a lot, but adjust amounts for your needs

2 1/2 lb. green cabbage, cored and cut into 3" chunks, then finely chopped or shredded
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 large green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 large carrot, coarsely grated
1 1/4 c. mayonnaise
1/3 c. cider vinegar
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

Toss all vegetables in a large bowl with salt and pepper.

Whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar, and sugar, then toss with slaw.  Chill covered, stirring occasionally, for at least 1 hour before serving. (for vegetables to wilt and flavors to blend)
