My take on KFC's Cole Slaw

This was requested in yesterday's what's cooking thread. Its taste is exactly like Kentucky Fried Chicken cole slaw, as written, but if you are guilty (like me) of not not exactly following a recipe ........it won't.

8 cups of finely diced cabbage
1/4 cup grated carrot
2 tbs minced onions

Dressing:
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp. white pepper
1/4 cup whole milk
1/2 Best Foods or Helmans mayonnaise
1/4 cup buttermilk
4 tsp of plain white vinegar
4 tsp of real lemon juice.

Mix all the dressing ingredients, and toss with the slaw. Refrigerate several hours, overnight is best. Keeps well, tossing occasionally.

That's usually what I do and use the Kraft Coleslaw dressing.

I love the KFC because it is always so crisp and fresh tasting. Not too soupy; and their cabbage is so finely shredded.

You are missing the prime ingredient... the fumes of the cooking chicken.

I tell ya chicken places always have the best slaw.

cole slaw rules period. cabbage seems to be very under-consumed vegetable :-)
any other dishes you know can be prepared with cabbage?
