KFC Cole Slaw Low-Fat/Low-Calorie
By Todd Wilbur

Recipe Type: Salad
Calories: 85
Cook Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
Recipe Rating: 4.0 (2 reviews)
I reduced the calories and fat in this popular side dish by replacing key ingredients with lower fat substitutes. This version tastes just as good as the original, but with half the fat and almost half the calories of the slaw youre used to.

Original KFC
Calories: 150
Fat: 6g
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 cup low-fat milk
1/4 cup reduced-fat buttermilk
2 tbsp plus 1 tsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
8 cups finely minced cabbage (approximately 1 head)
1/4 cup carrot, shredded then finely minced
2 tbsp finely minced onion

1. Combine mayonnaise, milk, buttermilk, sugar, vinegars, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk well until the sugar is dissolved.

2. Add cabbage, carrot and onion, and toss well. Be sure cabbage, carrot and onion are chopped into very small pieces, about the size of rice.

3. Cover and chill for at least two hours before serving. Overnight is even better.

Serves 10.

I used fresh lemon juice for this recipe, and I think that helped. I prefer my slaws and salads a bit more dressed than this recipe yielded, but the flavor was good. The dressing is on the loose side, so by the next day, it was watery in the bottom of the bowl. Compared to the KFC version, the flavor was comparable. I will definitely make this again.
