Notes

  • Use any color of bell pepper. Red, orange, and yellow will be sweeter, and green will be less expensive.
  • If not serving whole recipe at once, mix dressing in separate bowl and mix together prior to eating. 
  • You can shred your own cabbage and other veggies too, but using a bag of pre-shredded coleslaw will be easier and save you time
