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!!
