A while back, I was craving some coleslaw and searched around for a simple recipe with ingredients that we normally have around the house and found this one. As tempting as it may be, do not skip the last step. This allows the flavors to mesh together and gives it a better taste.
- 1 head cabbage finely chopped
- 1/4 cup carrot shredded
- 2 tablespoons minced onions dried
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
Be sure that the cabbage, carrots, and onion are chopped up into very fine pieces (about the size of rice kernels).
Combine the sugar, salt pepper, milk, mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar, and lemon juice, and beat until smooth.
Add the cabbage, carrots, and onions. Mix well.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
