Vonna's Vinegar Slaw

2 packages of prepared slaw cabbage (the bags I get usually already have carrots in it too, if yours doesn't include 2 large carrots grated)
1 lg. glass jar of Pimentos; drained
1 lg. green pepper; seeded and diced
2 c. sugar
2 c. apple cider vinegar

In a large plastic container (like those rubbermaid take alongs with a lid), put all of the vegetables: cabbage, carrots, pimentos and green peppers layered in the container. *I usually layer in the container (cabbage, peppers, pimentoes) and don't mix until I add the slaw "juice". Put lid on the container and put in refrigerator.

Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer) slowly mix the sugar/vinegar solution. This is *key* mixing these two things together until you get like an oily actually can tell it is like a syrup. I usually put it on low in my kitchen aid stand mixer and turn it on low and mix for about 20 minutes. Pour this vinegar syrup into a clean glass jar or plastic bottle and put in the refrigerator to chill.

When you are ready to serve the slaw pour the juice over the vegetables and mix well making sure that the juice touches all vegetables. Serve as an appetizer salad with crackers or on your bratwurst or knockwurst. DELICIOUS! Everyone will want to know your recipe ;)
