“I got this recipe off the internet, but haven't tried it yet. I liked the idea that it didn't call for buttermilk, which I never have on hand, but usually have sour cream. Wanted to post it here for easy access. Cooking time is refrigeration time. BTW, I realize that I could make homemade copycat buttermilk, but there's too much redundancy, with the milk and vinegar already in this recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place coleslaw in non-reactive bowl.
  2. Whisk together sugar and next seven ingredients thoroughly, plus onion if using.
  3. Pour over coleslaw mix and stir to coat. May add paprika at this point, if desired.
  4. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
  5. Note: Mix may seem dry at first, but will loosen up after cabbage reacts to the dressing and releases it's moisture. Also, when I've made my traditional coleslaw recipe, I grate my onion, because I don't like the minced bits.
