Homemade Coleslaw

Some things are just so simple to make in the kitchen that you can't help but wonder why anyone would need to follow a recipe. The answer is simple - to vary it so it's different from someone elses version.

The following is my version for a coleslaw that is similar to that from a very famous fast food outlet.


  • 8 Cups Finely Shredded Cabbage (About 1 Head)

  • 1/4 Cup Finely Shredded Carrot (About 1 Med. Carrot)

  • 2 Tbsp. Onion (Minced)

  • 1/3 cup Granulated White Sugar

  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt

  • 1/8 Tsp. Ground Black Pepper

  • 1/4 Cup Milk

  • 1/2 Cup Mayo

  • 1/4 Cup Buttermilk

  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Vinegar

  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice

Combine the sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayo, buttermilk, vinegar, and lemon juice in a large bowl and beat until smooth.

Add cabbage, carrot, and onion and mix well.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
