The Secret is Out

A lot of people grew up on KFC Chicken. It was really one of the only fast Fried Chicken house’s around. My generation’s Moms were busy working or just getting wise about being stuck in the kitchen frying up a chicken.Warm biscuits and honey, corn on the cob and the creamy coleslaw. The Colonel always had the “Secret Recipe”, but as far as the coleslaw goes the secret is out.

adapted from mocha me

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 head of cabbage
1 medium carrot (about 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons minced onion

Chop cabbage into chunks and run through your food processor, or chop fine.

Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a large bowl, whisk well.

Combine cabbage, carrots, and onion and toss well. Pour dressing over the slaw and turn to coat well.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving to allow the cabbage to soak up the marinade. Overnight is best.

Serves 10 to 12.
