Personal Notes:
The slaw will not be like Aunt Nannie's, no matter how hard you try. I know. I've tried for years. Daughter, Donna.

This is how the recipe came to be in the words of Athala. "When I was a little girl, my mother made slaw. She cut the cabbage with a sharp knife. She put salt, black pepper, and her own homemade cider vinegar over it. It was sour, but I liked it. When I was 15 years old, we bought mayonnaise for the first time. Mother started to make her slaw with the cut cabbage, salt and pepper, and 2 tbsp. mayonnaise. I didn't like it. I was married in 1948 at 22 years of age. I started to make slaw one day. I knew Don didn't like vinegar slaw and I didn't like mayonnaise slaw, so I thought I would mix them. I came up with "Nannie's Recipe." I have put it in several cook books and I have several nieces who expect a quart of slaw under the Christmas tree."
