C-3PO’s Coleslaw

This recipe is one of several featured in the July 1978 Dining In article Tots and Pans

We all know that cabbage is a cheap and good source of vitamin C. But try telling that to a kid who turns his nose up at this vegetable in any form. When a friend of mine shared her grandmother’s coleslaw recipe with me, I knew I could seduce the kids into eating it if only I could get them to take that first bite. So I named it after a character in their favorite movie.
