I had to make this recipe with my mom(I am 11) for a horse rescue program I work with. They were having "EAT WITH YOUR HORSE DAY." We made this for everyone and they loved it!

This is excellent, and well it should be, 'cause the dressing (with the exception of the garlic powder) is the same as the KFC copycat coleslaw. My favorite.

I had never made coleslaw before and knew Kittencal was the go-to recipe! I got TONS of compliments on this and someone told me it was better than a certain local restaurant coleslaw that they loved. I wanted a creamy coleslaw because I was also serving bbq pork sandwiches and I threw it right on top. MAN was it so good. It's my go-to recipe and what I'll always make! (I did use the bagged claw instead of cutting my own because I do love my shortcuts). Thanks Kittencal!

I knew your recipe would be a winner and you didn't disappoint me at all. Excellent coleslaw! I only used a scant 1/3 cup of sugar though as I didn't want it to be too sweet, but so so sweet to my taste. Absolutely delicious.. Couldn't have been happier with the way it turned out. Happy Cooking! THANK YOU!! I can do the happy food dance!! NOW !! I can't leave anything alone! THANK YOU!! Grpa.

I must admit that pretty much everything of yours that I try deserves at least 5 stars, Kittencal - this will be the only coleslaw recipe for this family from now on. Only changes I made were lower fat Hellmann's, 160 ml can evaporated milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2 and I added some horseradish and Dijon mustard. Wonderful recipe, thanks so much!

Wonderful coleslaw. I had to use bottled lemon juice (would have been better with fresh) and used homemade mayonaise. Definitely a keeper. Thanks Carol

This is fabulous coleslaw! My husband is not a coleslaw fan and he really enjoyed it. I doubled it for two batches and there was more than enough dressing. I can see that allowing it to refrigerate overnight is a must. Next time I'll cut back on the sugar--I don't think 2 tblsp. of sugar is needed but if you like it with a little extra sweetness, go for it!

Like everyone said this tastes just like KFC or even Applebee's coleslaw. I was lazy and didn't feel like shredding the carrot and cabbage so I bought one of those coleslaw mix bags in the produce section. I didn't take into account that the purple cabbage they toss in that mix would BLEED purple and turn the whole dish purple. Still tasted perfect, just a funky color. Keeper recipe.

This is quite literally the most delicious coleslaw I have ever tasted. I crave it! I am from Texas and I know my Barbeque and my sides. When we cook out, my DH makes the most amazing Barbequed ribs you have ever tasted and I make this coleslaw and my BBQ Macaroni Salad. These Pacific Northwesterners don't know what to do with themselves! We always have requests for this delicious, easy recipe and there are never any left overs! Great job! It's the perfect tangy to sweet ratio and doesn't taste like mayonnaise. You nailed it!!
