Copy Cat Alert

Yeah, I know you are probably wondering why I am making cole slaw for Christmas but the answer is easy. I felt the urge to. :) This afternoon I am heading to my parents to celebrate Christmas and one of the meats that they are serving is pulled pork so I thought that cole slaw would be a perfect accompaniment. With the help of a food processor this can be made in a matter of 10 minutes. And yes, it really does taste just like KFC's.

Hi Amber! I made your cole slaw to go with pulled pork sandwiches for my Aunt's 70th Birthday. It was a big hit. Chopping it fine created a great texture. Thanks for posting.
