The Worlds Best Cole Slaw

The sun is out and it feels almost 'summery', maybe that is why I'm suddenly craving good southern fried chicken, cole slaw and biscuits. Mmmm. Just the thought of it makes my mouth water.

I started making this cole slaw in 1993 when we lived in Nashville, TN. My handwritten recipe card is actually yellowed with age by now... which doesn't make me feel very good! LOL. I also notice that I wrote it out in green ink pen. It's my favorite recipe for cole slaw and I have a hard time eating anyone else's but mine since I'm a bit spoiled now! (I do love Long John Silver's Cole Slaw though!)

Cole Slaw

1 head finely chopped cabbage
1 medium carrot, grated
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup milk
1½ T white vinegar
2½ tablespoons lemon juice

Combine everything but the cabbage and carrot and whisk until smooth. Add the cabbage and carrot. Chill 2 hours and serve.Print Friendly and PDF
