I make this but I never have buttermilk. So for the half cup of milk I add one tsp. white vinegar and let it rest five minutes. Or double the recipe if needed. Also for extra crunch if I have them I shred radishes into the slaw. Great recipe as is I really hate to tweet someone's recipe. One more thing, I don't use a box shredder. Use a knife and slice and chop as thin as possible. The slaw won't get as soggy, and will last another day without being to wet. Read More

I would make it again bit with half of the sugar. This is a very sweet version...maybe because we don't eat a lot of sweets. Read More

Gotta say this is pretty darn close. My cole slaw typically has a thicker dressing but the restaurant slaw doesn't so this one is spot on. Followed the recipe to the letter and this is a good copycat recipe. Read More

Delicious! I've never had Chik-Fil-A's slaw but we loved this one. It is more on the sweeter side and has a thinner dressing as lutzflcat mentioned. This actually sort of reminded me of KFC's slaw. I will def be making this one again and again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Great cole slaw dressing recipe! This now replaces the dressing that I had always made. For extra color and crunch I add some finely diced green pepper (or red) and a tad of finely diced onion as well. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was very good and is pretty close to the slaw from Chick-Fil-A. If you like their slaw you'll like this! Read More

We do like Chick-fil-A slaw and this is close. We found the dressing to be a little thinner than the original. If you like a creamy base slaw this is a good recipe and one I will be using again. I shredded the cabbage and carrot in a food processor to get the fine texture. This is a great recipe to top pulled pork with. Thanks Tisha for sharing your copycat recipe. Read More

Classic coleslaw! Save yourself a lot of hassle and buy a bag of slaw mix. I was looking for slaw that would taste like your run-of-the-mill creamy tangy crispy slaw to use to top pulled pork sliders and this was perfect! My guests all raved about how good it tasted. Hardly any leftovers and it was absolutely simple to make. Read More

great base recipe - I did put a little less than the 1/3 cup and it was sweet enough. I used apple cider vinegar because I was out of regular vinegar and it worked out! Read More
