Kentucky Colonel Cole Slaw

Well here we are at the height of summer and the picnics and cook outs are at their peak. In my book, nothing goes better with BBQ meats than a nice cole slaw. And what better than knocking off that famous southern colonel’s recipe.

I have made this a thousand times for my back yard get togethers with nothing but good reviews. Here’s how you do it.


1 Head of cabbage finely chopped

1 Carrot shredded

½ Cup of sugar

½ teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

½ cup of mayonnaise

¼ cup of buttermilk

1 ½ tablespoons of white vinegar

2 ½ tablespoons lemon juice


In a large bowl combine all ingredients except cabbage and carrot, mix until smooth. Add in cabbage and carrot, stir together. Cover and refrigerate a couple of hours then chow down. It doesn’t get any easier than this. The only downside is how are you going to get rid of what’s left of the quart of buttermilk. You can’t drink it because it tastes like #@!* in a hand basket. When you figure it out let, me know.
