KFC Cole Slaw Restaurant Recipe gets it right.

Why is it that stores NEVER get cole slaw right?

Restaurants do.

Delis do.

Home cooks (sometimes) do.

But every time I buy a prepacked container of cole slaw I am disappointed.

It always tastes — too sour or something. When you make cole slaw at home or get it in a restaurant it is usually sweet and creamy, like this version from KFC or like that little bowl of heaven they bring you with club crackers at a good diner. A place where the waitress says “Here ya go, Hon” when she sets it down.

By the way — I have the same complaint with bottled 1000 Island Dressing.

Oh, well. As I said, here is a recipe for a good creamy version like they serve at KFC.
