Coleslaw with Creamy Buttermilk Dressing





From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...When thinking about a salad to accompany a picnic or barbecue, coleslaw is arguably everyone's first choice. It's inexpensive to make and easy to assemble. This version uses a package of shredded cabbage and a simple buttermilk dressing that you can put together in minutes. The dressing is wonderful for any salad. If you'd like to wilt the cabbage before dressing the slaw, put it in a colander, toss it with a teaspoon of salt and let it sit for an hour or so at room temperature. Then rinse it with plenty of cold water and pat it dry. If your packaged slaw contains red cabbage be forewarned that it will bleed into your finished salad if allowed to sit too long. You may or may not want that. Here's the recipe for the slaw and the buttermilk dressing.

Coleslaw with Creamy Buttermilk Dressing...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
1 (10-oz.) package confetti slaw
2 tablespoons finely minced shallots or scallions
1-1/2 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
1-1/2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
1-1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
1) Place confetti slaw in a large bowl. Set aside.
2) Place shallots, sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, buttermilk and pepper in a 2 cup jar with a lid. Shake to combine.
3) Pour dressing over slaw and toss to combine. Refrigerate until well chilled. Yield: 4 servings.

That is a wonderful dressing recipe. Once again, I am adding to my "buttermilk file." P.S. I have a blueberry cobbler in the oven using your blackberry cobbler recipe :-)

Oh what a gorgeous colour this slaw has!!!! Perfect for summer and very cute! I imagine the buttermilk dressing must give a nice tang to the salad and make it memorable

Oh, how we love coleslaw here. Your buttermilk dressing sounds creamy delicious. I would not be able to resist.

Karen said...

Coleslaw isn't one of my favorites because I always compare it to what we got in a little deli when I was a kid. It didn't have the raw taste of cabbage and it had the creamiest dressing. The cabbage was cut into long slices and it was delicious! I'm going to give this a try - it might just be what I'm looking for with the buttermilk and by salting the cabbage and 'wilting' it, it may be the consistency I'm looking for. Thanks, Mary!

Florida Sue said...

I agree with everyone, the buttermilk sounds great in the dressing. I have some leftover from the cobbler, so this will be great for tomorrow's dinner.

Rita said...

Always looking for new recipes. I have a BBQ to go to next week and will try your pink slaw. I have copied the lemon buttermilk ice cream and sent it to my BIL who keeps his ice cream churn hopping each weekend and loves new favors to try.

Great looking slaw Mary. You're right, the red cabbage will bleed if you aren't careful. I like yours because it isn't too sweet. Perfect just like I like it.
