Restaurant Remake: KFC Coleslaw

The other night we decided to try to remake a classic restaurant side: coleslaw.  In the past, my picky eaters have had plain cabbage with Miracle Whip (our salad dressing of choice!).  I ran across a recipe at The Slow Roasted Italian that I tweaked to fit the ingredients I had in the frig.  The flavor is pretty tasty and it was a hit.  Carrie 1, KFC 0.  Yay!  Now... to find a chicken recipe to go along with in!

Restaurant Coleslaw
½ head of cabbage
1 carrot
1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp sour cream
2 tbsp sugar
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1. Stir together mayo, mustard, sour cream, sugar, garlic & onion powder, salt & pepper and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl.  Set aside.
2. Finely chop cabbage and grate carrot.  Mix together in a large bowl.
3. Pour dressing over the vegetables and stir till well combined.
4. Put in the refrigerator for about 1/2 hour to help flavors blend.
5. Serve.

What do you put in your coleslaw?  

Happy cooking,


  1. Nice recipe. I do enjoy coleslaw, except I replace the sugar with honey.

  2. Good idea, Chef - I will try that with the next batch! Thanks!

  3. Carrie,
    I love a good coleslaw recipe,and I'm a mayo devotee, myself. This does look creamy and delicious!

  4. It really is delicious, Amy. Swap the mayo in and give it a go!

  5. Will be trying this. We LOVE coleslaw.

  6. It is truly delicious! Easy-peasy as well.
