Sorry it’s been awhile! Life has been busy, but at the same time, not exactly “blog-worthy”. However I wanted to share this recipe that I just made tonight!
I’ve been feeling so good lately, I really have no complaints, but been having random food aversions and cravings. I’m suddenly such a picky eater! I REALLY was in the mood for a refreshing side dish to go with some of the BBQ we’ve been having. The weather here has been quite hot and humid the last couple of days (almost feels as if we just skipped right past Spring!) so we’ve been enjoying chicken and burgers on the grill.
This coleslaw is a copycat Kentucky Fried Chicken recipe, and I have to say that it tasted pretty darn similar! I made a big serving, so we could refrigerate it and have it with a couple meals. I used my food processor on the cabbage, carrots and onion, and while it makes things faster it’s not necessary. I don’t think KFC has onion in their slaw, nor do they use red cabbage but I did. And some say adding Tarragon Vinegar instead of white vinegar would give it a more true KFC flavour, however I did not have any on hand, and this mama-to-be wanted coleslaw and she wanted it NOW!! 😀
KFC COPYCAT COLESLAW
1/2 c. mayo
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. buttermilk
2 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 Tbsp. white vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
4 c. red cabbage, finely chopped (approx. 1/2 head)
1 lg. carrot, shredded
2 Tbsp. onion, minced
1. Combine dressing ingredients in a large bowl, and beat until smooth.
2. Add salad ingredients to the dressing and mix well.
3. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
I hope you enjoy this side dish! It’s great for BBQ’s, potlucks and parties and you’re bound to get people raving about it! If you make this, be sure to let me know how it turns out! Keep me in the loop with any additions/alterations you may make! I’m always willing (maybe not so much lately, with this picky baby 😉 ) to try new things and tweak my recipe.
