Buttermilk Coleslaw

Classic Southern Style Buttermilk Coleslaw

I’m an utter fool for coleslaw. We all know I’m cuckoo for salads in general, but coleslaw is in its own category. It’s a definitive warm weather food for me. I’ve shared one of my two favourite coleslaws here before, but I just realized as I stuffed a bunch of my all-time favourite Buttermilk Coleslaw…
