The creamiest coleslaw ever but it stays crisp thanks to the one little trick I'm sharing in the instructions! Be sure to keep it refrigerated or on ice if you're eating outside. This contains mayo and summer heat doesn't play well with it.
Combine cabbage, carrot, and onion in a large colander.
Sprinkle with sugar and salt.
Stir gently to combine and make sure all the cabbage is covered in the sugar/salt mixture.
Place the colander in the sink and leave for 10 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly with cold water, stirring the cabbage mixture around with your hands to get all sides.
Drain well and dump the vegetables on a clean tea towel.
Gently press as much liquid out as possible.
Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in a large bowl.
Add the cabbage mixture and stir well to be sure all the cabbage is coated with dressing.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Serve ice cold.
Some people say that original KFC Coleslaw does not use mayo or buttermilk - it uses Miracle Whip. If you prefer that just substitute the Miracle Whip for the Mayo and leave out the buttermilk.... The ORIGINAL original KFC Coleslaw had a little horseradish in it - you can try about 1-½ teaspoons if you remember that version.
