Just Like KFC Coleslaw

I can still remember, growing up, how excited my sister and I would get whenever we got to eat KFC for dinner. We always ordered the same sides; mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits and coleslaw.

That coleslaw! I loved it. I never ate much as a kid, but I'd always have room for seconds when it came to KFC coleslaw. I haven't met a coleslaw like it since, that is, until a couple of weeks ago. Then I found this "copy cat" recipe on GroupRecipes.com, and with great hesitation I decided to try it.

Guess what? It's dead on! Now I can have homemade KFC coleslaw any time I like, with the added benefit that I know exactly what goes into the bowl. No chance of preservatives or questionable, unpronounceable ingredients.

Just Like KFC Coleslaw
Makes enough for 4, plus leftovers

Bag of shredded coleslaw mix (14 oz)
2 tbsp minced sweet onion
1/2 c mayo
1/3 c white sugar
1/4 c milk
1/4 c buttermilk
2 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp table salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper

Beat all ingredients (except onion and coleslaw mix) with a whisk until smooth. Add coleslaw mix and onion and toss to coat. Allow to mellow in the refrigerator about 2 hours (or overnight) before serving.

    1. Oh no! I'm sorry it wasn't your thing. But the best part about copycat recipes you can make in your own kitchen is that you can change them to your liking!
