What is your flavourite Coleslaw dressing recipe

Hi I am looking for a nice coleslaw dressing, I love the taste of the kfc dressing can anyone help.

I just use lite Greek yoghurt or lite sour cream and crushed garlic. Goes well on any coleslaw, in pita bread etc, wraps.

Countdown premium slaw is almost exactly the same as KFC if thats any help

Chef_twindizzy, Jan 18, 1:57 am

This is the recipe I have for a KFC coleslaw copycat - it is very similar.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup granulated sugar
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 - chopped or processed finely
1 medium carrot grated/chopped/processed
2 tablespoons minced onion (I just chop it very very fine)


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.

mint sauce YUMMO!

Chef_snowmoa, Jan 18, 5:31 am

Yes, I agree. I always add some mint sauce to my mayo for coleslaw.

Roasted sesame dressing. Divine!

Chef_wheelz, Jan 18, 10:30 am

Yum! And apple cider vinegar without anything added - very refreshing.

I used the good old condensed milk dressing in my last coleslaw and thought it tasted like kfc coleslaw (although haven't had kfc for many years so not sure how good my memory is lol).

Tahini dressing - it is addictive

My vegan 'mayo' - mash together 1-2 avocados, garlic powder, dash of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, pinch of cayenne. mix into slaw. My favourite.

Our household love homemade cond milk, but followed by the Budget brand. great for curried egg salad. which is now a stable for BBQues.

Chef_korbo, Jan 18, 7:22 pm

Add some horseradish sauce to this. Delicious.

Chef_susieq9, Jan 19, 1:44 am

Yeah I'm very old school and I love the good old condensed milk/vinegar/mustard dressings

Chef_tigra, Jan 19, 10:38 pm

At the mo, I like
2 T olive oil
2 T soy sauce
2 T apple cider vinegar
2 T caster sugar
Combine all in a jar, and shake well

Chef_rainrain1, Jan 20, 4:28 am

use tarragon vinegar in the dressing instead of apple cider that's the difference

my mum used to make a dressing with cooked egg yolks, mustard powder, salt and pepper, vinegar and pouring cream, and a bit of sugar

yes I have started putting mint sauce in, so refreshing as well thanks for the tip

Chef_slimgym, Feb 23, 5:04 pm

Good old condensed milk dressing is my favourite on coleslaw (1 tin condensed milk, 3/4 cup cider vinegar, 1tsp mustard powder). Then again, it's pretty much my favourite dressing on everything. and because it solidifies and requires a touch of a water to loosen it each time you use some it lasts for ages.
