An KFC Coleslaw copycat recipe! The dressing tastes nearly identical to the original recipe thanks to one ingredient. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much this clone tastes similar to KFC’s original Coleslaw.



When I was a young child I can recall eating KFC frequently, particularly because coupons were always that were sent out through the mail. We would get it for occasions like picnics or family gatherings One of my absolute favorite items from KFC is and always will be coleslaw. I’m not sure what it that is so appealing about KFC coleslaw that attracts me but I am in love with it. Even though it’s been a long time since I’ve eaten KFC and I’m still getting the desire for coleslaw, which is the reason I’m thrilled to have come up with the KFC Coleslaw Copycat recipe. It’s so similar to the original recipe that I’m thinking you’ll be having a difficult time discerning the difference.

If you’ve been to KFC you’ll be familiar with the famous cole slaw. Every time I visit, I always have this delicious salad, until a friend showed me the recipe and I recreated it at home!
