I love coleslaw but hate paying $4 a pound for it. This recipe is CHEAP to make and it is SO easy! You can get 4 times the amount of coleslaw for a fraction of the price you would pay at a deli… PLUS, this tastes much better than deli coleslaw! (The coleslaw actually comes out creamier than what it looks like in the picture.. )
Coleslaw (tastes just like KFC)
8 c. cabbage, finely chopped
1/4 c. shredded carrot
(or you can use a couple bags of the pre-chopped cabbage-carrot mixture)
1/3 c. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 1/2 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 Tbsp. mustard (optional, but adds a nice flavor)
Chop up the cabbage and carrots into fine pieces.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar, lemon juice and mustard, and whisk until smooth. Add the cabbage and carrots. Mix well.
Cover and refrigerate overnight. Drain excess liquid and stir well before serving.
