Buttermilk Coleslaw

(4 Votes)

Drink in the compliments when you use buttermilk, yes, buttermilk to make a homemade Buttermilk Coleslaw that'll rival any deli-style version from the market. Try it and become a believer!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 (10-ounce) packages finely shredded cabbage
  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
What To Do:
  1. Combine cabbage and carrot in a large bowl.

  2. Whisk together sugar and remaining 7 ingredients until blended; toss with vegetables. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.

  • This makes a big batch of coleslaw, and leftovers will keep a couple of days in the fridge. If you don't' need such a large amount, you can easily cut the recipe in half.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Way too much sugar. I added additional vinegar, lemon juice and mayo to counteract the sweetness. I didn't really taste the zest of the buttermilk--probably would not use regular milk and add additional buttermilk.

I made it for my wifes birthday cook out and made a half head of cabbage it was gone in 10 min. everybody wanted the recipe. Thanks

I made this and it was really good. But, I added a little chopped sweet onion to it as well - it was GREAT!

would it last to double or triple recipe & store in fridge?

love et ty
