1 head cabbage-chopped very fine
1/4 cup shredded carrot
2 1/2 Tbsp minced onion
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 Tbsp Vinegar
2 1/2 lemon juice

Cut cabbage and carrot to very fine pieces. Combine sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayo, buttermilk, vinegar and lemonjuice in large bown and beat untill smooth. ADd cabbage, carrot and onion. mix to coat well.
I have used this EXACT same recipe for many years with fabulous results. It's one of the very few recipes I follow to the letter, as it's perfect just the way it is. I strongly recommend it be made exactly as written. Chill thoroughly before serving.
This is a killer of a recipe!

I agree with you about the salty chicken. There is a KFC very near where I live, but after trying it once, never again. It was so salty I couldn't eat it.

I had wished they would offer a low salt chicken, but now, with diabetes, I can't have either the high salt, or the flour based breading.

Oh well, the joys of getting old.

Have you all tried the grilled chicken from KFC? That's pretty good - not as salty and no breading on the skin.

I've saved the recipe to try. The sugar surprises me. Does the coleslaw come through as sweet?

My mother used to put apple in coleslaw which sweetened it a bit.

I was surprised to see that KFC make it on site. I would have thought they would have bought it from some central KFC supply depot to ensure sameness in all restaurants as the restaurants are franchises (at least they are in the UK).

Yes it is a sweet coleslaw which is pretty common over here in the states.

Surprisingly the sweet and sour taste is in perfect harmony MC. The jury is out about KFC making it on site in this country. All I know is I no longer have to buy it there. I will never fool around with another cole slaw recipe again.

Sounds like my kind of cole slaw! I've made it similar, but haven't had it with the addition of buttermilk. Copied and saved.

I won't drink buttermilk, but I do find that any recipe with it as an ingredient, is my kind of recipe. Maybe that is why I love real ranch dressing so much. The buttermilk really adds depth to the food.

I won't drink buttermilk either Addie, but my favorite summer treat is a smoothie with equal parts of lime sherbert blended with buttermilk. Now I know what's for dessert on this hot night.
