When I was a kid, I loved coleslaw from Long John Silver’s. The only one we could go to was in Tracy, CA. Normally, we would get our coleslaw from KFC; I never enjoyed it as much as the Long John Silver’s coleslaw. I found the KFC one too bland, milky and soggy. A few years ago I found out that Long John Silver's was bought by KFC (or at least they merged). I went there to eat, looking forward to the coleslaw I liked so much, but alas, it was the KFC brand. I was crestfallen. So, I came up with my own recipe for coleslaw; not exactly the same a LJS’s. but better than the bland, milky type.


2 cups (16 oz.) red cabbage, shredded

2 cups (16 oz.) plain cabbage, shredded

1 cup (8 oz.) carrots, shredded

1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

¼ cup heavy cream

¼ cup whole milk

1/8 teaspoon salt

½ to 1 tablespoon cracker black pepper (by preference)


1. In a large mixing bowl combine vinegar and mustard, whisk together

2. Add cabbage, red cabbage, and carrots.

3. Mix together; make sure all the ingredients incorporated.

4. Add cream and milk.

5. Add salt and pepper.

6. Mix together and let stand for 15-20 minutes.

7. Taste and re-season if desired.

8. Cover and refrigerate before serving.

9. When ready, serve coleslaw alongside, chicken, steak, potatoes or baked beans.

10. Place any used portions in an air tight container and refrigerate.

11. It should last 2-3 days.

      I may have to try this. My wife likes to make a broccoli slaw and that is very good. But it can be hard to find a really good coleslaw. I do luck out there we have a small catering/restaurant in town that has a great slaw.
