Anyone who has tried KFC’s coleslaw knows what I am talking about. All coleslaws that I eat are measured up against KFC. The sad fact is that most coleslaw is no where close to being as good. So why fight it? This is a KFC copycat coleslaw recipe and it tastes so close to the real thing.

Ingredients:
————
8 cups of cabbage (approximately 1 head, diced)
2 tablespoons minced onions
1/4 cup carrots (diced)
1/4 cup milk (2%)
1/2 cup mayonnaise (substituting will impact the taste)
1/3 cup sugar (granulated)
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup buttermilk (one of the secrets to the taste)
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar

Instructions:
————-
Take the carrots and cabbage and finely dice them. It is important for this recipe that you have very small pieces.
Get a large bowl and place the diced cabbage and carrots in it.
Add the minced onions to the bowl and mix thoroughly.
In another bowl mix the sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayonnaise, buttermilk, ninegar, and lemon juice togehter to create the dressing. Keep mixing until it becomes smooth and creamy.
Take the dressing and pour it into the bowl with the cabbage and carrots and mix it thoroughly.
Cover and place the bowl in the refrigerator for several hours before serving.
