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.

How to Make KFC - Creamy Coleslaw - Clone


  • 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!
