Multi Colored Cole Slaw

Such a wonderful summer side dish! I had both green and purple cabbage in the refrigerator that I wanted to use up and also happened to have some carrots leftover from my Dads garden that he had brought me (along with the green cabbage!). Perfect for cole slaw!

When it sets overnight it turns a crazy shade of purple... might be a perfect side dish for those hosting a football or basketball party for a purple colored team such as the Vikings or Lakers!

Multi Colored Cole Slaw
1/2 batch makes about 6 servings

2 c fine chopped green cabbage
2 c fine chopped purple cabbage
1 shredded carrot
1/6 c sugar
1/8 c buttermilk
1/4 t salt
1/4 c mayonnaise
3/4 T vinegar
1 1/2 T lemon juice
dash of pepper
1/8 c milk

Combine the cabbage and carrots in a bowl. Combine the rest of the ingredients. Mix and chill at least 2 hours before serving. Will be dry at first but will turn creamy as it sets.Print Friendly and PDF
