Chillin' Coleslaw

I have searched long and hard for a good coleslaw recipe.  My family has endured lots of failures in this effort, so I was so excited to finally make one that not only did they LOVE it, but ate every bit of it.  It reminds me a little of the coleslaw at KFC.  I named it Chillin' Coleslaw because  I believe the secret is letting it chill in the fridge for awhile.  
Chillin' Coleslaw
8 cups shredded cabbage (or diced)
1/4 cup shredded carrot
(or if you are lazy like me 2 bags of coleslaw mix from the grocery store.)
2 Tablespoons minced onions
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup milk + 2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 Tablespoons white vinegar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Mix your 1/2 cup milk with the 2 teaspoons lemon juice and let sit forabout 5 minutes. 
Pour your shredded cabbage, carrot and onions in a bowl and toss to mix together.
Mix sugar, salt, pepper, milk/lemon mixture, mayonaise, vinegar and lemon juice together.  Add more seasoning or sugar if desired.  Pour over cabbage mixture and mix thoroughly.  Cover and put in the fridge to "chill" for a few hours or overnight.
