Cole Slaw Recipe

Cole SlawLast month we went to two fish frys at two different churches in our neighborhood. For those of you not familiar with the Lenten tradition, the menu at these fish fries is pretty standard regardless of which church you attend. An entree of white fish, either baked or fried, with french fries and your choice of side dishes. Cole slaw is almost always on the list of "sides." Anyway, the cole slaw at each church that we went to was really bad. Soggy and not so fresh - like it was made around New Years.

Last Friday we were unable to go to a fish fry at church so we had our own family fish fry with fried cod, french fries, and we made cole slaw too. It turned out great and we used it for other meals as it stayed crisp and fresh for the whole weekend.

8 cups cabbage, finely diced
2 tbsp yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup diced carrot
1/2 tspn salt
1/8 tspn pepper
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tbsp white vinegar
2 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

  1. Finely dice the carrots and cabbage.
  2. In a large bowl, add the cabbage, carrots, and diced onion.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour over vegetable mixture and mix well.
  4. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.
