DO YOU LIKE KFC?
This coleslaw recipe tastes similar to the original Kentucky Fried Chicken coleslaw recipe.

Some people suggest using Miracle Whip but I think using real mayonnaise has a much more authentic flavor.

Give this recipe a try and see if you agree.

KEY TO SUCCESS #1 – LOAD UP THE VEGGIES
Coleslaw is one of those dishes that you can make so many different ways.

You can put so many different kinds of vegetables in it.

I like to use red cabbage, green cabbage, and carrots.

If you have a Kitchenaid mixer, there is a Kitchenaid attachment that is specifically for slicing and shredding vegetables.

This will really help speed up the process of shredding your cabbage.

If you do not have a Kitchenaid, there is a stand-alone Salad Maker appliance that does the same job.

Or many brands of food processors have an attachment that will shred vegetables.

Or you can get a bag or two of coleslaw salad mix from the grocery store. T

here is no shame in letting someone else do the shredding for you.

KEY TO SUCCESS #2 – MAKE HOMEMADE DRESSING
The real winner in this recipe is the homemade slaw dressing.

It’s made from a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

The dressing base is made from real mayonnaise, heavy cream, and buttermilk.

The buttermilk adds a nice tang to the dressing that you will definitely miss if you leave it out.

Then sweeten things up with a little white sugar.

And add a little flavor and acid with both vinegar and lemon juice.

Then season it all up with salt and pepper.

Whisk it all together and you’re ready to go.

It’s as simple as that to make the perfect slaw dressing.

KEY TO SUCCESS #3 – LET THE FLAVORS MINGLE
After you make your dressing, put your cabbage and vegetables into a large bowl and pour your dressing over the top.

Use two spoons or a pair of tongs to toss it all together until the cabbage is fully coated with the dressing.

Next, cover your bowl and place it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

Let it marinate overnight if you have the time.

It just gets better as it rests and the flavors start to mingle.

How cute is this litle vintage sugar bowl?

LET’S TALK SUBSTITUTIONS
You can certainly use a bagged cabbage/coleslaw mix in this recipe or you can shred your own using a food processor or a sharp knife.

Instead of heavy cream, you can substitute whole milk if you’d like.

I don’t recommend making any other substitutions.

I hope you’ll give this Make-Ahead Coleslaw recipe a try.
