KFC Coleslaw (Copy Cat)

I love serving this recipe at a good bbq dinner. I don’t find too many people who don’t like it. I do find it best to cut back on the sugar because using the full amount seems to be a bit much for me, but it’s up to you. I do advise maybe adding half then trying the sauce to see if you want more. You can’t take it back once it’s added. 

I don’t know if this is the exact KFC recipe but it sure is good. I certainly haven’t had better. I haven’t eaten at KFC in years for many reasons but as an adult I grew to love their coleslaw. 

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used light)
  • 1/8 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice (fresh is best)
  • 2 tbsp. + 2 tsp. sugar (add it until you are at the desired amount)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. celery seed
  • 8 ounce shredded bagged coleslaw mix


  1. Whisk together all the ingredients except for the shredded coleslaw mix.
  2. Add the bag and mix until nicely blended with the dressing. 
  3. Refrigerate at least 2 hours
