Copycat KFC Cole Slaw

The operative word when talking about our little garden is little, however, 
we've been enjoying some big taste from the veggies that we've been picking.
We've had several cabbages, not big ones, but several nonetheless.
It was one of our cabbages that gave us this delicious cole slaw.
So, little garden for the win!

Now, I am a little picky about my cole slaw.
I like it sweet, not vinegary.
James likes it both ways.
We both looove BBQ and cole slaw is an absolutely perfect side to go along with it.
(Or ON it!  Have you ever done that?  Piled the cole slaw right on top?  Try it!)
I don't always make it from scratch, but when I do, this is my go-to recipe.

My sweet daughter-n-law, Abigail, was over one afternoon & we were cooking ...
so she actually made this batch.
It was her first time to make from-scratch cole slaw.
(She liked it so well, she's made it again using cabbage from their garden.)
Isn't it colorful & pretty?

Here is the original recipe that I got at a Weight Watchers meeting years ago.
It's only 5 ingredients!

1 cup fat free Miracle Whip
1/2 cup sugar or sugar substitute 
8 cups cabbage, shaved or finely chopped
2 Tbsp. carrots, shredded
2 Tbsp. onion, finely chopped

Place all the veggies in a large bowl. 
In a small bowl, mix the Miracle Whip & sugar until the sugar is dissolved. 
Pour the dressing over top of the veggies & toss until combined.
Cover & chill.

Serving size:  3/4 cup
Points: 1.5
Calories 57
Fat: 0

Now, here are the changes I made.
I used light Miracle Whip & Stevia.
That altered the calories a bit, but not the flavor.

This is a good recipe.
Share it, pin it, make it, eat it!

Who doesn't love a good party?!
