I enjoy coleslaw from time to time. It has been awhile since I have had it, so I thought it was time to make it and I think that this coleslaw turned out wonderful.
I was searching the web for a KFC Copycat Coleslaw Recipe, and found this one! I ended up changing this original KFC coleslaw recipe a little bit.
For the easiest KFC coleslaw hack, I just bought a bag of coleslaw mix rather then chopping up a head of cabbage and carrots. You can do it either way, this just worked for me since I already had it on hand (and saved a bunch of work)!
The KFC coleslaw dressing recipe calls for buttermilk. Of course you can buy buttermilk at the store, but it may not be something that’s just sitting in your fridge! If you’re wondering how you can make a KFC coleslaw recipe without buttermilk on hand, you can very easily make your own buttermilk with this simple trick.
This is such a quick and easy coleslaw recipe, but it does say to let it sit for 2 hours before you serve it. That is pretty important as it will help soften up the cabbage and allow the flavors to soak in. You can always add more salt and pepper to the recipe for more flavor!!

How to Make KFC Coleslaw:
What you will want to do is mix all the ingredients except for the coleslaw/cabbage mix in a bowl. Once it is all mixed you will then add in the cabbage mix into the liquid. Mix well, and then cover the bowl and put in the fridge. You need to let it sit for 2 hours before you serve it.
