High Heels & Grills: Cole Slaw

Cole Slaw

You know all of those end-of-the-summer barbecues you're going to be attending before school starts? Well, I have the perfect (and easiest!) side dish for you to bring along! I went over to my friend, Brooklyn's house the other day to do some crafts and hang out when she pulled out a bowl of cole slaw. After scarfing it down in minutes, I knew I had to have the recipe for it immediately!


I've always been a cabbage lover. When my little sister would be picking it out of her salad during dinner, I'd gladly be asking for more. This combination makes it even more yummy!

Ingredients:
  • 8-10 cups of finely shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 c. shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (Definitely NOT miracle whip. That's an abomination.)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2-1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. onion salt

Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, mix cabbage and carrots.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine all other ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  3. Pour wet mixture over the cabbage and combine well.

Brooklyn told me (and I agree) that it tastes a lot better after it has been sitting in the refrigerator for a day or so. It gives it some time for the cabbage to soak up all the delicious juices. Either way though, it still tastes fantastic!
