KFC Coleslaw

I can't believe I haven't shared this recipe yet. Its a must! I used to hate coleslaw. I've found that a lot of people over do the onion and I don't like raw onions (although I do LOVE caramelized onions!). KFC's is good, Mo's is good (especially with their shredded pork sandwiches!)...this recipe is good. The key really is to let it sit in the fridge for some time after you make it. It says refrigerate for 2 hours, but its even better if you do it over night. This goes great on (or on the side of) a burger. I made it today to go with our slow-cooked bbq pork ribs...mmm! Now thats some good summer southern comfort food for ya!

  • 1/2 cup mayonaise
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 8 cups (1 head) finely chopped cabbage
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot (1 medium or a handful of baby carrots)
  • 2 Tbsp minced onion
Be sure cabbage and carrots are chopped up into very fine pieces (about the size of rice - use a food processor). Place in a large bowl. Combine the mayonnaise, sugar, milk, buttermilk, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a smaller bowl and beat until smooth. Add to cabbage, carrots, and onion; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving (overnight is best).

Serves 10-12.
