2 cups red cabbage, thinly sliced
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup pistachio nuts, chopped
2 clementines or tangerines, peeled, divided into segments, and chopped

Instructions: 

Combine the cabbage and onion in a large bowl.

Mix the sugar, buttermilk, mayonnaise and lemon juice in a small bowl until smooth. Pour the buttermilk mixture over the vegetable mixture and toss to coat thoroughly.
