KFC - Creamy Coleslaw - Clone

Gary Hancq


When it comes to creamy coleslaw: Kentucky Fried Chicken's Coleslaw RULES, REIGNS and ROCKS.

As much for the texture as for flavor -- KFC has Got it Right. A mouthful of Heavenly Mush.

After extensive research and trials in the kitchen, this is about as close as it gets.

It's addictive -- And KFC always leaves you wanting more. Hope this has the same effect.

12 to 18 portions
30 Min


1/2 c
mayonnaise ( prefer hellmanns)
1/3 c
sugar granulated
1/3 c
1/3 c
buttermilk (you can sub with 2 teaspoon sour cream)
2 Tbsp
lemon juice fresh or real lemon from bottle
1 1/2 Tbsp
white vinegar
1/2 tsp
1/8 tsp
1 medium
head of cabbage grated very fine
1/4 c
carrots, grated very fine
2 Tbsp
sweet onion minced very fine


1Shred or mince cabbage, carrots and onions very fine, to size of a grain of rice.
2Mix mayo, sugar, milk, buttermilk or sour cream, lemon juice, white vinegar, salt and pepper until smooth.
3Add sauce to the well mixed and well distributed cabbage, carrots and onion. Stir and incorporate well.
4Place in refrigerator and allow at least 2 hours before serving. Best if allowed to set in fridge overnight.
5Note: A food processor works best for mincing the veggies. The alternative is the smaller holes of a handheld shredder. Yields about a quart and a half.
6As I noted, much of the appeal of KFC's slaw is the texture as well as the flavor. Enjoy!
