Copycat KFC Coleslaw

KFC Coleslaw has always been my favorite! It's creamy and a little sweet and very simple. With spring here, I have been craving coleslaw and made this simple copycat KFC Coleslaw recipe in minutes!

The thing I love about KFC Coleslaw is how creamy and sweet it is! It's not a vinegary slaw and it's also not thick - it's light and almost "juicy" - this copycat coleslaw recipe came out exactly right! 

The one thing I'll say about my recipe is - it has purple cabbage too! I know that KFC coleslaw doesn't - but I bought a coleslaw mix of cabbage/carrots from the store and it was in there - all tastes the same. For me, it's all about the dressing - and that is just right in this KFC coleslaw copycat recipe!

How long is KFC Coleslaw good for? 

I don't think it'll last long in any household because everybody will eat it up! But I would say it's good for 7-10 days. Mine was gone in 4 days - because I couldn't help myself! 

Can you freeze Copycat KFC Coleslaw? 

No. With all the dairy of buttermilk and mayonnaise - I wouldn't freeze it. 

How to make KFC Coleslaw at home? 

It could not be easier!!!! Literally - I was shocked! I dumped the bag of coleslaw mix out and diced it - because KFC's is diced pretty small. Then dump that into a bowl. I minced part of an onion pretty small - dumped that in. 

Then in a separate bowl mixed together mayo, milk, buttermilk, sugar, salt, pepper, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. Whisk that together and pour over the slaw/onion mix. Stir and refrigerate! I was done in 10 minutes!!
