We love the slaw from Kentucky Fried Chicken. You can make it easily at home if you buy the packaged cole slaw mix. Lots cheaper too.
You can use the prepackaged cole slaw mix or cut up a cabbage yourself. It takes a little practice, but you can cut the cabbage with a big knife or shred it on a metal shredder. The slaw seems to taste better when the pieces of cabbage are thin. The cole slaw mix usually has shredded carrots in it, so if you are doing it yourself shred a carrot or two into the mix as well.
From the reviews:
“Seemed dry when first put together, but it really creams up quickly in the frig – 2 hours is plenty of time for it to set up. I added two diced radishes, I think next time I will add four . . . to add some more crunch. Aftter reading reviews, I added more onion, ground mustard and a tad more salt. Yummers! Served with ribs and baked beans. My boyfriend’s take: “better than Southern cooking and I never had to leave my porch in Arizona.” And he is picky about his slaw.”
We often add a can of crushed pineapple in it’s own juice to this. It’s really good that way. I get asked for the recipe so often. You can also add raisins if you like. Purple cabbage looks nice in this too.
Give this one a try for a very tasty slaw you can serve all summer long and into those fall game days.
