BETTER THAN KFC Cole Slaw - Kentucky Fried Chicken CopyCat Recipe - BBQ and Grilling Time Secret Extras Catering Side Dish Recipes

Pin It Now!

Does anyone make cole slaw from scratch anymore??? I mean buying a head of cabbage, mincing carrots, adding a few extras and the season?

It's just too easy to buy the bag of pre-mixed from the store, add some mayo and serve.

But really, how about a few upgrades like this recipe.

Add a few pantry staples (and buy a small container of buttermilk) and bingo bango bongo you have the formula for almost the KFC cole slaw (arguably the most served cole slaw in the world, so arguably the popular).

There is an exact recipe out there floating around the web.  This has a little stronger buttermilk flavor, I use Cider vinegar (again more flavor) and a little less mayo for a better texture (less runny).

So, better than... in my opinion at least!


 OK... Here's what I did...
