Coleslaw Recipe...Great For Picnics and BBQ

I love summertime picnics and cookouts, because of all the yummy food!! Nothing better than a grilled hot dog with mustard and a pile of coleslaw on the side or on top of the hot dog!!

Here is a recipe I've used for years. I don't remember where I found it, but this tastes just like the coleslaw from KFC.


1 bag shredded cabbage mixture
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 cup milk
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise (try to use the full fat kind. Low fat or fat free just doesn't work)

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together except the cabbage. Add cabbage and stir to coat. Cover bowl and refrigerate at least 2-4 hours...longer or overnight is best. Really produces more liquid the longer it sits.


Mix all ingredients together first before adding the cabbage.

Add cabbage...

Stir to coat...

Cover, refrigerate and let marinate 2-4 hours or overnight.

Enjoy with your favorite summertime meal!!

  1. This sounds just like my kind of thing! Thanks for the recipe, I never thought of making cole slaw, and yet I am a gourmet cook! Hmmm.


  2. We were just talking about KFC's slaw and how good it is. Can't wait to try it.
    Thanks Dian

  3. Another way to make it yummy is to shred the cabbage and sprinkle sugar over it and let sit a few hours. If you like onion then thinly slice and sprinkle salt over that and let sit. I'm going to use your dressing recipe above with this and see how it turns out. xo


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment...I just love hearing from you!
