Classic Cole Slaw

Classic Cole Slaw

Growing up, we seldom were treated to a fast food dinner. What a tortured childhood. My mom did succumb every now to our pleas and would send my dad out for carry out Kentucky Fried Chicken…she adored their cole slaw. She tried to recreate it numerous times…back before we had the Internet, she relied on the food section of the Des Moines Register and her network of friends for new recipes. I think she came pretty close…but I haven’t ever seen that recipe in her vast collection of cards and clippings.
