Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Jeff''s Grandma Johnson. She made this recipe for many years. Jeff's mother makes the "Cold Slaw" now. When I see it at family gatherings, I think of Grandma Johnson. What a great woman she was and what an empty place in our hearts, when she passed away. With the arrival of Christmas, a silver dollar would be given to the grandkids. Jeff is carrying on Grandma Johnson's tradition by giving our grandchildren silver dollars for Christmas.
