My mother picked up this pickled cabbage recipe in Pennsylvania, and as long as I can remember, there was always a "bucket" of slaw in the refrigerator. Now I have an old stoneware butter crock in my refrigerator filled with the same!
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
