Best KFC Copycat Coleslaw

Growing up I always enjoyed eating KFC’s coleslaw, but would have never thought about knowing how to make my own. I did some internet searching a couple of years ago and tried several recipes until I found the closest and BEST tasting one with a little tweak of my own of course. Needless to say, we don’t buy it anymore. Now that I have done the legwork for you I thought I would share, since I am not one those crazy people who would NEVER share a family (or any) recipe, because it would be the end of the world….. Come on, you know at least one of those people….

Coleslaw Recipe 1024x680 Best KFC Copycat Coleslaw


1/2 cup of mayonnaise

1/3 cup of granulated sugar

1/4 cup of milk

1/4 cup of buttermilk (I actually don’t use buttermilk, I use the substitute (milk & white vinegar) as I think it tastes better, plus I don’t need the extra expense since the recipe only calls for 1/4 cup).

2 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice (Fresh lemon juice is better)

1 1/2 tbsp of white vinegar

1/2 tsp of salt (I put a little more, but it all depends how you like it)

1/8 tsp of pepper  (Again, I put a little more)

1 bag of ready made coleslaw mix


I whisk all the ingredients together and let it sit a couple of minutes before adding the coleslaw. Then I pour out the coleslaw bag and mix it in! I stick it in the fridge for at least an hour before serving, this way the flavors intensify. Trust me, you will love this recipe!

Hope you enjoy!

Your Latina,
