This is the only recipe for traditional cole slaw that anyone needs. It is spot-on and a perfect clone for KFC cole slaw. I have only made it with "real" buttermilk and not milk mixed with lemon juice/vinegar but I'm sure quick homemade buttermilk would do in a pinch.

Spot on! I like cole slaw in general but most of my family hates it...except the KFC slaw. I admit, I prefer it to most cole slaw as well. This is as close as you can get without just going and ordering it from KFC.

My boyfriend compares all Cole Slaw against KFC's! I made the original recipe and also the improved and had him do a taste test. He LOVED them both but preferred the original recipe just a bit more! This Cole Slaw is SO GOOD and spot on! Thank you for all the great recipes - it has kept my sanity during COVID but hurt our waste lines a bit LOL!

My grandpa loves KFC coleslaw, it is the only coleslaw he really even wants to eat. I made this for him and he said it tasted even BETTER than KFCs! I got 2 packs of the Dole Southern Diced Slaw and it makes it even easier to make!

Best coleslaw EVER, hands down! We are a two-person household, and my husband does not eat coleslaw, so I don’t make the full recipe at one time.I simply make the dressing and keep it in the refrigerator to be combined with my cabbage/carrot mix when I’m ready for a new batch. I’m old enough to remember the day when KFC grated their cabbage instead of chopping it, so this recipe gives me the opportunity to make the coleslaw I remember! The taste is certainly different (and in my opinion, better) when grated versus chopped. THANK YOU for this gem.

This is a WINNER. Directions say to wait two hours. I could not wait and tasted it right a way. This definitely tastes like the KFC coleslaw in the Detroit metro area I bought two days ago at $4.66 for a pint. This is the best recipe ever for KFC coleslaw. Followed directions to the letter.

It's less soupy if you combine the salt and cabbage in a collendar and let it sit over a bowl for an hour to let the cabbage give up it's water before adding the other ingredients. Cabbage will give up a lot of water.

I think KFC's coleslaw is the best one from a fast food restaurant and this recipe was very close in flavor. Did use a package of coleslaw mix with the red cabbage and onion powder instead of the minced onion. Refrigerated overnight and stirred occasionally until served the next day.

Fantastic, I did exactly the same as the recipe and the copy is very similar to the original. Thank you very much
