Creamy Buttermilk Coleslaw
Buttermilk gives coleslaw a great tang, but it makes a thin sauce. How can you keep the tang but still create a consistently creamy sauce?
Why This Recipe Works
Buttermilk gives coleslaw a great tang, but it turns into a watery sauce as the cabbage sits. For a creamy buttermilk coleslaw recipe that kept the tang but also featured a consistently creamy sauce, we salted the shredded cabbage to remove excess water. Then we added a little mayonnaise to our recipe to give the sauce some body and thicken the dressing. And finally, to make up for any tanginess that the mayonnaise dulled, we added a bit of sour cream to our Creamy Buttermilk Coleslaw.
