My family loves KFC Coleslaw, so much that they refused to eat any other coleslaw recipe I suggest. That got me thinking, maybe I should try making a copycat recipe for KFC coleslaw myself? I’ve tried quite a few different types of coleslaw in my day, but this recipe turned out perfectly! It’s a great dish to bring to a family get-together or a pot-luck. This infamous slaw recipe is one you’ll make more than just once!
This delicious KFC coleslaw recipe was found on my friend Debbie’s blog, mocha me. I immediately saved it and printed it out. It wasn’t until a couple months later that I finally tried it. The results, at first taste, were pretty close to KFC’s, but there seemed to be an overwhelming fresh cabbage flavor right after making it. However, after this sat in the refrigerator for several hours, the cabbage had time to soak up the flavor of the dressing, and that did it! Just like KFC!

Helpful Kitchen Tools
Chop cabbage into chunks and run through your food processor, or chop finely. It’s up to you to decide the size you’d like your cabbage to be.
Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a large bowl, whisk well. Combine cabbage, carrots, and onion and toss well. Pour dressing over the slaw and turn to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving to allow the cabbage to soak up the marinade. Overnight is best.
