This copycat KFC coleslaw recipe tastes just like the real thing. When testing, our Test Kitchen found the longer the KFC coleslaw chilled, the better it tasted. Go ahead and whip up a bowl and let the coleslaw sit overnight to really let those flavors develop.


  • 14 to 16-ounce package coleslaw

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/3 cup whole milk

  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk

  • 2 tablespoons grated onion

  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Finely chop coleslaw mix.

  2. In a large bowl whisk together the next eight ingredients (through salt). Stir in chopped coleslaw. Cover and chill at least 4 hours or overnight. Stir before serving.
