KFC Cole Slaw

As a kid, I always loved the cole slaw at Kentucky Fried Chicken... so, when we decided to have homemade slaw, I found a recipe at a web site called and it was dead on!


1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup buttermilk (we used milk with a little vinegar, an old trick Linda's mom taught about the same)
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 cups finely chopped cabbage
1/4 cup shredded carrot
2 tablespoons finely minced onion

Be sure cabbage and carrots are chopped very fine. Combine the mayonnaise, sugar, milk, buttermilk, lemon juice, vinegar, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Add the cabbage, carrots and onions and mix well. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
