First time I made this I cut cabbage and carrots in my food processor very fine. Slaw was excellant! just like KFC. Then I made another batch and was short on time and used the already shreded cabbage and carrot mix. Not the same - very runny and flavor was close to KFC but not as good as my first batch. So I will stick to shredding it myself. Great Recipie!!!

WOW What a great recipe we all loved it. I added red onion for color and instead of milk I added half and half made the dressing creamier. I will make this alot its really soooo good. Thanks for a great recipe.

If this isn't the original...it sure seems close. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out looking and tasting just like KFC's coleslaw. I took it to a church picnic and got a lot of compliments. Thanks so much...when I make coleslaw from now on this is recipe I'll be using.

This was awesome! Even my "I HATE cabbage" son loved it! I've only made slaw with jarred sauce - never again. Definitely a keeper!

Great recipe! Used bagged cabbage/carrot mix and it turned out great. Quick, easy, and tasted similar to KFC's. I Served this with BBQ ribs and baked beans. Will make this again, Thanks :)

This is and has been my favorite for the past couple of years! I actually think it's better than KFC and love the brightness the fresh lemon brings to the dish. I do use the bags of pre-shredded mix and it works out great. Thank you for a great recipe!

YUM! I've been using Splenda instead of sugar, and light mayo. Buttermilk is just regular milk with lemon juice, so I use 1/2 cup of milk and 3 Tablespoons of lemon juice. It's low on calories and I can have tons of it on my diet!
