Farm Coleslaw

This seems to always be a staple at cookouts. Goes great with Just “2” good ribs or any ribs for that matter and a side of cornbread. Vegetarians will love this too.

Makes about 10 servings.


  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 2 ½ Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ½ Tbsp cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 8 cups cabbage, finely chopped or shredded
  • ¼ cup carrot, julienned or shredded
  • 2 Tbsp onion, minced


  • 2 large bowls
  • Whisk
  • Spatula


  1. Add cabbage, carrots, and onion to large bowl and mix well.
  2. In a separate large bowl combine the mayonnaise, sugar, milk, buttermilk, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and pepper and whisk until smooth. Add to cabbage mixture in other bowl and mix to combine.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for a least 2 hours before serving.

What you should know

This coleslaw is a little on the sweeter side. You can adjust the sugar to your taste.
