I love cole slaw, especially KFC's. It definitely didn't resemble KFC. Four out of four at the dinner table gave it a thumbs down. Marzotti's cole slaw dressing out of a jar was better. Sorry.

Omit sugar if you use miracle whip and you have a winner. It was soooo good. Definitely using this recipe again.

This has been my go-to recipe for creamy coleslaw since 2005! Friends ask me to bring it to cook-outs all the time. Thank you, Kaarin!

Oh dear, I hate to admit this but after scaling the recipe down to 4 servings since that was all the cabbage I had on hand, I ate the entire thing except for about 4 tablespoons. That was a lot of coleslaw too! It's so good though. Accidentally used way too much paprika since I was just shaking it in the bowl and it turned the dressing a pinkish color but the taste was divine. Oh, I also couldn't wait to let it sit overnight. It was almost gone in 30 minutes! By the way, I am 4 months pregnant so maybe that's the reason I scarfed so much down! UPDATE #2: I made this a second time using Miracle Whip (first time was Hellmans) and I had to throw it out. The Miracle Whip was way too tangy. Also used bagged colelaw mix and it's just not the same as you shredding it yourself. UPDATE #3: Made again using Hellman's and fresh cabbage that I shredded myself and it's awesome! I love this slaw!

This is my stock recipe for cole slaw, with one difference: mayo instead of the Miracle Whip. Well, and less sugar. I mix the milk, lemon juice, mayo and seasonings in the bottom of a large steel bowl. Then I add the food processed cabbage and carrots. Have made it many, many times. Modification: add pineapple chunks plus a little of the juice. That's some goooood slaw!

SIL is allergic to vinegar so I went looking for something that didn't have it in the ing. Found this, made for a birthday dinner of pulled pork, coleslaw and extras. I'm glad I did. Everyone liked it. Thanks, I'm sure I will make it again.

OMG!!, Outstanding! I've made the real imitation KFC coleslaw many times, used the food processor wtih the carrots and onion etc. and of course it's really good. But for convinience and a fantastic coleslaw to boot, this is it!! Crisp and creamy, and super easy! I used a bag of slaw mix, and and mayo instead of Miracle Whip because it's what I had on hand. Thanks Kaarin, I won't make anything else now!! Oh, and I didn't let it sit overnight, it was still fantastic!

I made this for a B.B.Q. family get together & there was none left afterwards. I just used a bag of the coleslaw mix and added your ingredients - how easy and good. Thanks for sharing.
