Homemade Coleslaw - much like the KFC style

Coleslaw is a salad consisting primarily of finely-shredded raw cabbage and dressed most commonly with a vinaigrette or buttermilk salad dressing.

You can use a sugar substitute of your choice instead of sugar and if you do not have buttermilk, you can sour 1/4 cup milk with a bit of lemon juice or vinegar and let it set for a couple minutes until you see it get thick or use buttermilk powder.

Also, if you want to skip chopping the cabbage, you can buy the cabbage/carrot mixture pre-packaged at the store to equal about 6-7 cups of shredded or finely chopped cabbage.  It will be dry at first mixing but after it chills for 2 hours it will have formed its own juice.  Stir well and serve cold.

The Best Cole Slaw

1 head finely chopped cabbage
1 medium carrot, grated
1/3 c granulated sugar (optional: sugar substitute equivalent)
1/4 c buttermilk
1/2 t salt
1/2 c mayonnaise
1/8 t pepper
1/4 c milk
1½ T white vinegar
2½ T lemon juice

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

I used Ideal natural sweetener, buttermilk powder and almond milk. I've also used Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar instead of white vinegar.  The substitutions are up to you!
