My husband surprised me with this when I came home today from Richmond from visiting my oldest son and his family (grandaughter of course!). He had picked up some KFC and had this cole slaw alongside the chicken and biscuits. I'm telling you that I would never have known he made this! It tastes just like KFC's cole slaw!! I'm not a big fan of cole slaw but I do like a helping of it with fried chicken or BBQ. It just adds something to the dish. If you like KFC's cole slaw then you have got to try this. My husband happens to also be a really, really good cook. He may not be a baker but this man can cook and arrange a platter way better than me anytime!!! He found the recipe in the book titled Top Secret Recipes!
The weather down here in Virginia was just beautiful this weekend. Sunny and 60.....no complaining here!!!
