Hubby and I both agree on one thing. No matter how many coleslaw recipes I try, KFC is still on of the ALL time best. BUT, we don’t have a nearby KFC that’s any good at all so this copy cat recipe will have to do.
COPY CAT KFC COLESLAW
1/2 cup FULL fat buttermilk (or half WHOLE milk and half buttermilk)
1/2 cup Duke’s mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper (1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper)
1/3 cup sugar
Juice of 1 LARGE lemon
- Whisk ALL together and set aside.
8 cups FINELY chopped cabbage (see note)
2 cups FINELY chopped carrots (see note)
3 tablespoons grated onions
- Toss cabbage, carrots and onions together in a LARGE bowl.
- Pour dressing over, tossing to coat well.
- Refrigerate covered 2-4 hours before serving. Best next day.
NOTE: If you have the time GRATE the cabbage and carrots on the large side of the grater to get the perfect size.
I agree 110%. My hubby and I were just talking about cole slaw the other day and how I love KFC and he is not a huge fan of it. I feel it is the absolute best slaw out there, even better than homemade.
