The Technique

Buttermilk Cole Slaw

Buttermilk Cole Slaw is a southern recipe classic that pairs well with a number of foods ranging from ribs & smoked pulled pork sandwiches to fried chicken & fried catfish. The key to really good slaw is being certain it is seasoned well & served with a slotted spoon. This is a simple recipe & tasty indeed. Slaw should have an undeniable crunch as it is the texture that plays such as vital role in making it delicious. Cleaning & coring the cabbage is a cinch when a freshly sharpened chef knife is used. Working with one half at a time, use it to cut a triangular shape around the core & remove it. A whisk becomes a vital tool in order to make the dressing. Learn how to make Buttermilk Cole Slaw in your very own kitchen.

How To Make Buttermilk Cole Slaw

Buttermilk Cole Slaw is one of those baseline sides that is ideal to offer when summer entertaining is in order. I have prepared it with homegrown cabbage & farm stand produce with equally good results. Expect a good bit of water to release once the finely chopped vegetables are tossed with the dressing. Season the mixture generously with salt to allow all of the flavors to shine.
