Norwegian Coleslaw Recipe
This tasty recipe was give to me by a friend whose ancestors were from Norway. I especially enjoy bringing this salad dish to family get-togethers since I can make it days ahead. A pint of it also makes a nice gift.

- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1-1/2 cups sugar

- 2 cups chopped celery
- 1 small green pepper, chopped
- 1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
