Fast Food ColeSlaw

Sharing is caring!


This is my go to recipe for ColeSlaw.  It’s from a Top Secret Recipe cookbook.  It’s supposed to be a KFC clone recipe.  I don’t think it’s an exact copy cat, but to be fair, I haven’t had the original in almost 4 years!  ColeSlaw is one of those foods that I’m very picky about.  There’s just something about it that I either love or hate.  I prefer mine to be finely grated.  ColeSlaw that has cabbage shredded in larger pieces just doesn’t seem like the real deal in my book.  Maybe it’s a regional thing, I’m not sure. I am from Kentucky after all  😉  But I do know that I’m lovin’ my food processor every single time I make this recipe!

Fast Food Coleslaw goes perfect with any thing barbequeish.  Yes, I did make that word up, but I know all of you are agreeing with me!  If you saw my  Shredded BBQ Chicken post this week then you may have spied this coleslaw on the platter.  I love to eat it with BBQ chicken!  I also love it with Sloppy Joes, hamburgers, even chili!

If you don’t have a food processor, you could do all the chopping by hand or use a box grater. I’ve done both methods and let’s just say I’m very thankful for my kitchen appliances!!
