Best Cole Slaw

8 cups chopped cabbage (one head)
½ cup shredded carrot (I normally do not use carrots, but some people like it)

1/3 cup sugar
½ tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
¼ cup sweet or dill pickle relish or to taste (I normally make two kinds of cole slaw—one
with sweet relish and one with dill relish)
¼ cup milk
½ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup buttermilk
1 ½ T white vinegar
2 ½ T lemon juice

Combine sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar, lemon juice, and pickle relish; mix until smooth. Add cabbage and carrots (if using) and mix well. Cover and refrigerate about two hours before serving. This cole slaw can be converted to barbeque slaw.
