died and gone to coleslaw heaven

hunter and i LOVE coleslaw for some strange reason.
and of course, no one else loves it at all.
they all look at us really strangely when we get excited about eating cabbage. 
want a snack? have some coleslaw. 
whats for dinner? coleslaw. 
if i dont have a head of cabbage in the crisper, 
its time to run to the market. 
and while the ready made coleslaw dressing is good, 
i was determined to make my own...and now, 
we love coleslaw even more, 
if that is even possible. 
weird, i know.

coleslaw heaven dressing

1 1/2 head cabbage sliced
 sliced green onion (to taste)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
1/8 tsp pepper (i added way more)
1/4 cup milk
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 TBS white wine vinegar
2 1/2 TBS fresh lemon juice

combine with chopped cabbage and chill 1 hour before serving

I love coleslaw. I lived for a time in NC and they just called it "slaw" and put it on everything, even hotdogs!
