My Mama's Cole Slaw Recipe



My husband goes crazy for this Cole slaw, (talking about him again, dang it, I can't stop!). It is super easy to make and gets better with time in the fridge. I am making brisket sandwiches for the boyz tomorrow and wanted to include my Cole slaw! We purchased a Traeger Smoker last weekend and smoked our first brisket, however we forgot to take pictures.

8 cups finely chopped cabbage (I use half cabbage and half broccoli slaw) which you can find in the salad section.
1/4 shredded carrots (I skip this as the broccoli slaw has carrots)
Raisins (my mom added them, hubsters does not like so I omit)

The dressing

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used the low fat variety)
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper, you could use white pepper, I like fresh ground
1 1/2 tbl white vinegar
2 1/2 tbl lemon juice

Mix well, taste and re-season if needed to your liking.
Combine with your shredded cabbage and broccoli slaw.
Refrigerate and it will improve with a few hours in the fridge

Great cole slaw recipe, especially with the inclusion of buttermilk. Yum! I bet it tasted great with the brisket. How do you like your new smoker?

Apricot Walnut Bread

My Husband bought a huge package of dried non sulfured apricots and I was sick of seeing them in the fridge mocking me.  I don't eat...
