KFC© Type Cole Slaw


KFC© Type Cole Slaw
makes 10 servings
(America)
Cole slaw is a slightly different form of salad because of the inclusion of butter milk in the recipe.   While many restaurants, especially fast food, serve a variation of cole slaw as a side dish, in my mind the king of commercial cole slaw is the version served in KFC©  restaurants.  I found using a "Salad Shooter" and the grater blade produces the appropriate sized dice for the cabbage and the onions and the taste really benefits from allowing the slaw to mature for about 24 hours.  This recipe enables you to produce a very close  copy of that premiere slaw.

Ingredients

8 cups very finely diced cabbage (about 1 head)
1/4 cup julienned carrots which  have been very finely diced
2 tablespoons finely minced onion
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

Preparation

1.  Place the diced cabbage and carrot mixture into large bowl and add minced onions.

2.  Put the remaining ingredients in the processor bowl of  a food processor and process until a smooth dressing results.

3.  Pour the dressing over cabbage/carrot/onion mixture and mix thoroughly to insure a thorough distribution.

4.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (or lid if bowl comes with one) and refrigerate several hours or, preferably, overnight before serving.
