Recipe By:Kristina
"Just an old family recipe that I have been told is reminiscent of KFC coleslaw. You be the judge! To speed things up I sometimes just buy an already shredded bag of cabbage with carrots in it and then just chop it a little finer."

Ingredients

  • 1 head cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2 carrots, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Mix cabbage, carrots, and onion in a large salad bowl. Whisk mayonnaise, sugar, milk, buttermilk, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and black pepper in a separate bowl until smooth and the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Pour dressing over cabbage mixture and mix thoroughly. Cover bowl and refrigerate slaw at least 2 hours (the longer the better). Mix again before serving.
