This is the coleslaw that goes with the amazing Pulled Pork.  I love how crisp this stays... adds a nice crunch to the sandwich!

1 head red or green cabbage (about 2 pounds), cored and sliced thin
Salt and Pepper
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
1 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. light mayonnaise
1/4 c. lowfat sour cream
3 scallions, sliced thin (I left them out)
3 T. minced fresh parsley
2 tsp. cider vinegar
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. honey

Toss the cabbage with 1 teaspoon salt in a colander and let sit until wilted, about 1 hour.  Rinse the cabbage under cold water, drain, and pat dry thoroughly with paper towels.  Toss the dried cabbage and carrots together in a large bowl to combine.

Whisk the buttermilk, mayonnaise, sour cream, scallions, parsley, vinegar, mustard, honey, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper together in a bowl until smooth.  Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerate until the flavors have blended, about 1 hour.
