Better Than KFC Coleslaw

Better Than KFC Coleslaw

This recipe tastes exactly like the original Kentucky Fried Chicken coleslaw but without the slightly bitter preservative aftertaste. It's easy to make with a food processor and it's very economical.

Wow, I just finished making this recipe and it really is exactly like the KFC coleslaw. The biggest difference I noticed is as the description states, there's no preservative aftertaste so it's actually better. I used only 1/2 the sugar called for in the recipe and used two carrots which yielded nearly one cup of shredded carrots so my slaw turned out a bit more orange than the store bought version. I also used Hellman's Olive oil mayo which probably helped to improve it as well.
