Recreate the flavour of KFC's famous coleslaw in your own kitchen with this authentic recipe that is so close, your family will swear you stopped by KFC on your way home!
8 cups Cabbage -- chop very fine
1/4 c. Carrots -- shred fine (about 1 large)
1 Tbs finely Minced Onion
1/2 c. Mayo
1/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. milk
2 1/2 Tbs Lemon Juice
1 1/2 Tbs Vinegar (white)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
The key to giving this amazing coleslaw recipe authentic KFC flavor and texture is by finely chopping the cabbage and carrot into the correct size pieces! You want them to be very small, about double the size of a grain of rice, to be exact.
In a large bowl combine the finely chopped carrot, cabbage and minced onion, mixing it well. In a medium bowl combine the remaining ingredients and beat with a hand mixer or whisk until smooth. Pour the dressing over the top of the shredded cabbage/carrot mixture and stir well to combine.
Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight for best flavor prior to serving. (This really should be refrigerated for at least 4 hours before serving!!)
If you don't feel like chopping the cabbage by hand you can quarter it (or cut it into 8th's depending on the size!) and put it in the blender a quarter of the time, add water halfway and pulse on and off until finely chopped, drain the water and you have instant finely chopped cabbage with very little effort.
