{Copycat} KFC Coleslaw

I am all about copycat recipes.
All. about. them.
Who doesn't want to be able to make their favorite restaurant dishes at home?
Unless you don't feel like cooking and want to go out to eat, okay. Otherwise, I love making my favorite dishes from my favorite restaurants at home. Saving money, people. That's what it's all about.

8 c. cabbage, finely chopped
1/4 c. carrot, shredded
(or just use 2 bags of the bagged coleslaw)
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp. white vinegar
2 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/3 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 c. milk

How You Do It
Combine the cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. Or open the bags and dump them in a large bowl. Combine the dressing ingredients and whisk well in a small bowl or use a jar to shake them up. Pour over the cabbage mixture and refrigerate till chilled. Or you could make the dressing first and let sit in the fridge till chilled then pour over the cabbage mix and serve.
