It looks like Chick Fil A is adding Kale. I'm not sure this is a better trade off. But then, I don't eat at Chick Fil A.

I just had cole slaw for supper using a bottled dressing that Jr. recommended. While it is good, it is not as good as The Colonel's clone recipe. I think I will stick to that. For now.

We make a super food slaw at work that is really tasty. The mix we use has coarse grated broccoli stumps, sliced Brussels sprouts, kale, carrots and cabbage. We add craisins and cashews. The dressing is an apple cider vinegrette with a bit of coconut milk added. I'm not sure that replacing an old favorite like coleslaw with something trendier is a great idea.

That is the winner in our family also. Why change to an unknown. I have never had Chick Fil A.

Hm. To try something new you might like? Do you make everything the same every time?

No, but since I make the slaw for the family and not myself, I make what I know they want and will eat but not waste.

And your grown kids and grandkids never try something new? That's too bad.

GG, the old Boston mayor wouldn't let Chick-fil-a into the city because of the religious beliefs of the family who owns it. Nearest Chick to Boston is probably 35 miles from Addie. Apparently, the 'burbs just want to offer quality fast food. C-F-A is the only fast-food place we really trust when we're traveling.

I just might give this recipe a try. Never had the coleslaw there, but when I make it at home I pretty much use Chief's "Miracle Whip" version. Hate having a jar of MW taking up room in the fridge, though, when I don't make slaw that often. This one uses the mayo that is always in the fridge.

My family can choose what they like to eat. It is not my choice. Sounds like you want to start an argument. Not going to happen here. Sorry.

Good ole Mennino. He always called it "his Boston." He was determined to get the title of the longest running mayor of any city or town in America. And he made it with his last election. Even longer than Daly of Chicago.
