Marinated Pepper Slaw

My husband worked with a guy back in the early 90's and the only thing left of the relationship is an old water stained recipe. This is a favorite of both my husband and my father in law, they like the spice this slaw has to offer.

 3 large sweet peppers (any color) trimmed,
 seeded, cut into julienne strips
2 or 3 fresh jalapeno chiles, stemmed,
seeded and diced
2/3 c olive oil
1/2 c red wine vinegar
3 TBSP sugar
1 head cabbage, shredded
1/2 c thinly sliced green onions
2 tsp salt

In a small saucepan, combine olive oil, vinegar and sugar. Set over medium heat and bring just to a simmer. Remove from heat and add the peppers and the chiles. Let stand, stirring a couple of times until cool. This part can be prepared up to a day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.

In a large bowl, toss together the shredded cabbage, green onions, marinated peppers and dressing, add salt. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve with an hour or so if you like it crunchy. For more tender slaw refrigerate for up to 6 hours. Serves 12
Ignore the onion, not sure how it got in the picture
Chop up everything
These guys can be tricky!
Always wear gloves
Roll while putting pressure on pepper, this
breaks up all of the seeds and dislodges the stem
Makes them super easy to cut and dice
Pour marinade over cabbage and peppers,
