Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe! 

We’re getting close to warm weather and that means patio parties and barbecues! So it’s time to look back at one of our favorite recipes. Several years back someone passed on a copy of a recipe that had been copied over and over again. It was suppose to be the KFC Coleslaw recipe. I’m going to admit it, I’m not a huge fan of coleslaw, but theirs has always hit the spot. So I gave it a try that year for the 4th of July, and not only was it spot on – but had everyone raving about it! It’s as easy as shred, mix and eat! Now.. I’m off to find a copycat gluten free version of their biscuits.. mmmmm! Enjoy!
