#3525 - Lettuce Slaw

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 head iceberg lettuce
1/4 cup diced green bell peppers
1/4 cup chopped onions
2 TBSP white sugar (more if necessary)
3 TBSP cider vinegar (more if necessary)
1/2 cup mayo

Cut the head of lettuce in half. Place one half of the head (cut side down) on to a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut it into thin strips. Repeat with second half of the lettuce head. In a large bowl add sliced lettuce, diced green bell peppers and chopped onions--toss. In a bowl add white sugar, cider vinegar and mayo--stir well. Taste--if too sweet add more cider vinegar and stir again. If too sour add more white sugar and stir again. Pour the mayo mixture over the lettuce mixture--toss to coat and serve right away. If you use a large head of lettuce and the mixture is too dry, make a second batch of the mayo mixture, pour it over the lettuce mixture and toss to coat.
