Cole Slaw

When I was growing up, it was a real treat for my Daddy to go to Kentucky Fried Chicken to get a bucket of chicken on Sunday after church.  I also liked the side dishes that came with the bucket of chicken, especially the cole slaw.  I had a friend to send me the site for famous recipes a long time ago and this recipe came from that site.  It was called KFC Cole Slaw and it certainly tastes like the slaw that I remember.  Try it and see what you think.  Do you remember your family sharing a bucket of chicken from KFC?

                                                           Cole Slaw

8 cups finely chopped cabbage
1/4 cup carrots, shredded
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup Hellmann's  mayonnaise
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice

Cut cabbage and carrots into small pieces.  In a salad bowl, combine the sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar, and lemon juice.  Beat until smooth.  Add the cabbage and carrots.  Mix well.  Cover and refrigerate.

I have used a bag of slaw mix that you get from the produce section of your grocery store that already has the shredded cabbage and carrots and it works well for this.
