KFC Coleslaw Recipe


So you wish you could duplicate that wonderful, crunchy, sweet coleslaw recipe you can only get at your local KFC? With this recipe you can. It uses buttermilk, sugar and a hint of Tabasco to give it that distinct flavor.

If you don't have buttermilk on hand there is an easy substitution; add 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar to 1 cup of milk. Let stand for 5 minutes to let the acid mix with the milk before adding to recipe.
