3/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup buttermilk

3 tablespoons lemon juice 

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

4 tablespoons distilled vinegar

1/3 cup canola oil

1/4 cup granulated sugar 

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt 

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

1 teaspoon celery seeds

1/2 teaspoon onion powder 

1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic 

1/4 teaspoon mustard powder 


1 large head green cabbage, finely shredded (a food processor or mandoline works well)

1 large carrot, finely shredded, rinsed and drained (so the color doesn't transfer to the slaw)


  1. For the dressing: Whisk together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, lemon juice, cider vinegar, distilled vinegar, canola oil and sugar in a medium bowl. Add the salt, pepper, celery seeds, onion powder and granulated garlic; combine well.
  2. For the slaw: Combine the shredded cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. Slowly add dressing, just enough to lightly coat the vegetables, and toss well. Taste, and add more dressing if desired. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

Cook’s Note

Cook's Note: This makes more dressing than needed, but the dressing keeps for weeks in refrigerator. It also makes a great snack dip for raw veggies.
