Coleslaw (KFC  Copycat)

1 (16 ounce) bag tri-color shredded coleslaw OR, if you shred your own cabbage for the recipe you will need 8 cups of cabbage and 1/4 cup shredded carrots.

2 tablespoons minced onion (I used red onion)

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/4 cup milk

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup buttermilk

1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar

2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

Pour the shredded coleslaw into a large bowl. Stir in the minced onion. In a separate bowl (you may want to use a food processor) combine sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar, and lemon juice. Mix until ingredients are well blended. Pour over cabbage mixture and mix thoroughly. Cover bowl and refrigerate for several hours or overnight before serving.
