2 to 3 tablespoons sweet cubed pickles           1/4 cup vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons salt                                        1 teaspoon (to taste) Texas Pete

3/4 tablespoon black pepper                        1 1/2 cups thinly sliced onion

Recipe from Richard Ingold on July 21, 2000.  Richard retired from the NC Department of Correction as Superintendent at The Anson Correctional Center in Polkton, NC, however his life was cut short due to cancer.  Richard was a good personal friend, excellent cook and a help to anyone in need and greatly missed.  Jesus Christ made a difference in his life.  This is the marinated slaw severed by the Anson County Shrines at their fund raising BBQ events here in Anson County, North Carolina.

NOTE:  The marinated slaw will keep a very long time covered in the refrigerator, however it will definitely get pepper hot from the Texas Pete, therefore if you plan to keep the slaw several months, you might want to cut the Texas Pete amount to 1/2 teaspoon.

The original recipe called for 1 tablespoon of Texas Pete and reduced the amount to 1/2 to 1 teaspoon on this recipe since we will not doubt have this marinated slaw on hand for a couple months or more and it gets better with age, however the hot pepper taste will increase seemingly 10 times!
