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

Step-by-Step

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