Homemade Copycat KFC Coleslaw

Thanks to Mariah from The Simple Parent who shared this lovely recipe at

This is simple and delicious - it makes a big batch too.  I shared with a grieving family. 

Hope you enjoy it soon.  It's soo easy because it begins with a bag of coleslaw mix - the hard work is done for you. 

It's great for potlucks, picnics or just having on hand for a meal. 


1 (1 lb.) package pre-shredded coleslaw mix with cabbage and carrots 
2 TB. minced onion
1/3 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 c. milk
1/2 c. mayo
1/4 c. buttermilk
1-1/2 TBS white vinegar
2-1/2 TB. lemon juice
Dried Parsley Flakes 

Place coleslaw mix in a large bowl. Add onions. Mix well. (Place mix in a food processor and pulse to shred a little finer if you desire the same texture as KFC serves.)

In a medium bowl combine buttermilk, milk, mayo, sugar, salt, pepper, vinegar, and lemon juice. Whisk well. Pour over cabbage mix. Stir well. Sprinkle with dried parsley.

Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.

  1. Excellent and really does taste like KFC's coleslaw, even though I had to make it low-fat and sugar-free for a special diet. I used splenda and low-fat yogurt instead of buttermilk as well as low-fat milk and mayo. I think I am going to regret only making 1/2 a batch!
