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.

I did not not care for this recipe.

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.

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. :)

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!

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

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.

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