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.

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.

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. :)

Amazing. Even people in my family who say they "don't like" cole slaw LOVED IT!

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