For the Coleslaw:
- 1 medium-sized green cabbage, finely chopped or shredded
- 2 large carrots, grated
- 1/2 cup (120ml) buttermilk
- 1/2 cup (120g) mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup (60g) granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup (60ml) whole milk

- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Prepare the Vegetables:
- Finely chop or shred the green cabbage.

- Make the Coleslaw Dressing:
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, mayonnaise, sugar, milk, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. Mix until the sugar is fully dissolved.
- Combine Vegetables and Dressing:
- Add the chopped cabbage and grated carrots to the dressing in the bowl. Toss everything together until the vegetables are evenly coated with the dressing.
- Chill the Coleslaw:
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the coleslaw for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight. This allows the flavors to meld, and the coleslaw becomes more flavorful.
- Before serving, give the coleslaw a good stir to make sure the dressing is evenly distributed.
- Serve the coleslaw chilled as a refreshing side dish.
- Optional: Customize:
- Feel free to customize the coleslaw by adding a pinch of celery seeds or a sprinkle of fresh herbs like parsley for extra flavor.
