Copycat “KFC” Coleslaw

For the most part I am not a fried chicken lover and on my own I don’t ever choose to visit KFC but Eammon does enjoy their chicken and I have found that I am quite fond of their coleslaw.  Since I’m not going to run to KFC every time I’m in the mood for some creamy coleslaw I had to figure out a way to get my fix when the craving strikes so after a little search of the internet I was happily making coleslaw at home that tastes spot on to the original.

IMG_0675eI am not linking to a source because you can find this recipe all over the internet.  Give it a try as it really does taste just like the coleslaw you’ll find at KFC.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 1/2 TBS lemon juice
1 1/2 TBS white vinegar 
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
8 cups finely chopped cabbage (about 1 head)
1/4 cup finely chopped carrot
2 tablespoons finely minced onion

Make sure cabbage and carrots are chopped up into very fine pieces (about the size of rice).

Combine the mayonnaise, sugar, milk, buttermilk, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and beat until smooth.  Add the cabbage, carrots, and onion, and mix well.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
