I have a little confession to make….I, actually, share them pretty often here because it’s like my safe space.  But this one, I know some people will judge a bit but that’s cool because I love KFC. That’s right, I’m a big fan of Kentucky Fried Chicken and all it’s glorious sides.  Especially…..the Coleslaw. It’s simple and perfect and not overly mayonnaise-y, which a lot of coleslaw tends to be.  And it’s absolutely perfect alongside a pile of fried chicken. I really love when a bit of the dressing seeps into the crunchy crust of the chicken, a little sweet/savory action right there.

So, I created a simple coleslaw recipe that’s totally inspired by the one I love at KFC. And frankly, I think this Easy Classic Coleslaw recipe is even better than their version. I added a bit of greek yogurt to the dressing to lighten it up a bit without losing the flavor one bit.
