KFC Coleslaw Clone Recipe

  • KFC coleslaw is one of my all-time favorite foods, unfortunately I have to drive 2 hours to find some. After doing some research I found this recipe and I have made it in the past and it is absolutely delicious! It tastes exactly like the stuff KFC makes!

    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/4 cup milk
    1/4 cup buttermilk
    2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    2 bags of coleslaw mix from the produce isle, or 8 cups shredded cabbage and 1/2 cup shredded carrots
    2 tablespoons minced onion


    • Be sure cabbage and carrots are chopped into very fine pieces (a little bigger than rice)
    • Combine the mayonnaise, sugar, milk, buttermilk, lemon juice, vinegar, salt and pepper in large bowl. Beat until smooth
    • Add cabbage, carrots, and onions. Mix well.
    • Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, if you let it sit over night it's even better :)

    Serves 10-12

    *Equivalent to 2 bags of coleslaw mix from the store
