I confess, the recipe is not mine. I found it some years ago as part of a pulled pork recipe I have since tossed out. But this slaw was a keeper! It's easy and quick to make, too!
Southern-Style Coleslaw with Buttermilk Dressing
¾ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup Dijon mustard
¼ cup packed brown sugar
3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons buttermilk
4 teaspoons celery seeds
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
3 cups shredded green cabbage (about ½ head)
3 cups shredded red cabbage (about ½ head)
1 green bell pepper, finely diced
1 large carrot, peeled and shredded
½ cup grated yellow onion
¼ cup minced parsley
In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, sugar, vinegar, buttermilk, celery seeds, salt, pepper, cayenne, and whisk well to dissolve the sugar.
In a bowl, combine ingredients. Toss with the dressing until evenly coated. Adjust seasoning to taste. Place in the refrigerator, covered, to chill slightly before serving.
Serve as a side salad or top pulled pork sandwiches with this incredible slaw.
