Creamy Coleslaw

We love coleslaw.  Our favorite restaurant coleslaw though has to be, hands down, KFC’s coleslaw.  It’s creamy, sweet, and oh so good.

I kid you not that we have literally gone to KFC just for their coleslaw.  Maybe we are the only ones who have done that, maybe not.  But there is no denying that they know how to make good coleslaw.

Over the years, I’ve tested many, many, MANY recipes and none are ever repeated.  They are all too tangy or missing some element. 

That is until I discovered this recipe. This recipe was EXACTLY what I was looking for.  OH man, it’s good.

We love coleslaw at picnics, barbecues and potlucks.  But I think our favorite way isn’t as a side but on top of meat. 

Slaw dogs are amazing – coleslaw on top of a hot dog roasted over the fire – absolutely amazing.  Or slaw on top of pulled pork or pulled chicken in a sandwich – wow. 

If you’ve not enjoyed your slaw on top of meat, then you are surely missing out and must try it. 

This is our new favorite {and repeated} coleslaw recipe.  It takes minutes to toss together and holds well for leftovers too!
