Cole Slaw Anyone?

The cabbage is finally ready in the garden and I'm busy using it up.  In a search for a good Cole slaw recipe, I ran across Todd Wilbur's recipe to "clone the world's best slaw" (KFC Cole Slaw) at Todd Wilbur's Top Secret Recipes.

Here is my modified version.  I took it to my in law's house last night and it was a huge success. 

Cole Slaw like KFC

Cole Slaw

1/2 cup light Miracle Whip
1/3 cup sugar*
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter milk**
2 1/2 T.  lemon juice
1 1/2 T.  white vinegar
1/2 t.  salt
1/8 t.  pepper
1/2 t.  onion powder
1/2 t.  celery seed
1 head of cabbage (about 8 cups)
2 medium carrots

Shred the cabbage and carrots and place in a large mixing bowl.  (I use my Food Processor to shred.) Set aside. 

In a small bowl mix all other ingredients until smooth.

Poor the mix over the cabbage mixture and mix well. 

Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours till chilled.

* I have made this with Splenda (1/3 cup) and it tastes good.  I like sugar better, but hubby isn't supposed to have sugar.

**A substitute for buttermilk.  1/2 cup milk mixed with 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice.  Let sit 5 minutes, then measure a 1/4 cup.

This is the cabbage in my garden today.  I love going out to the garden and cutting a head of cabbage and making a bowl of slaw right away.  Such fresh taste.

This is my gardening buddy, Molly.  She loves to eat what I would normally take to compost.  She is such good company.
