Copycat KFC Cole Slaw

I love KFC Cole Slaw!  I hardly ever eat at KFC because we try not to eat out that often, but when I do, I always get the cole slaw & biscuit for the sides.  There is just something mouthwatering about that sweet, crunchy side dish that makes me scarf it down.  I love it!  This copycat version is fabulous!  The longer it sits, the better it gets, so make this ahead of time & give it time to marry in the fridge.  You are going to love it!

    Hello Amber! I’m Amber, and I have not even finished stirring the slaw in the sauce and I just have to say AMAZING! My mouth is watering from this stuff! Making it for Easter tomorrow and I can say this recipe is for sure the only recipe I’ll ever use for my slaw. Love, love, love, this stuff! I’m not a big slaw person but as tradition I’ll always have this on my tablefor Easter but it’ll actually get eaten now HAHA! definitely taste like KFC slaw, I did use the milk and lemon only because I love to make homemade buttermilk.
    Thank you!
