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.
Hi Amber 🙂 So glad you are enjoying the cole slaw! Thanks for your review!
My hubby loves cole-slaw. It seems like every time I make it I’m trying a new recipe though because I haven’t really found one I like. I love the idea of using buttermilk though. I’ll have to try this one out. Krista @ A Handful of Everything
