Coleslaw in Jello

Make coleslaw that is very finely chopped the way KFC's Coleslaw is. This is close to what they make.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cabbage (very finely diced or grated)
  • 1 medium carrot (grated)
  • 1 Tbsp. onions, minced (optional)
  • 3 Tbsp. white granulated sugar
    Ad
  • 1/2 tsp. celery seed
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice

Directions:

Prepare all vegetables as directed. Place in container that has a lid. Set aside.

Mix cream, sour cream, (or yogurt), vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, sugar, celery seed, salt and pepper together and pour over vegetables. Mix well.

Place in refrigerator overnight or for at least 4 hours. This allows flavors to "marry".

Our family likes Orange Jello best for this salad. Use what your family likes best.

  • 1 large package Orange Jello
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • ice cubes to equal 1 cup of water

If you make this salad in a rectangular cake pan, it will be easy to cut and serve in squares.

Directions:

In a large bowl, add boiling water to Jello and stir until thoroughly dissolved. Add ice-cubes and stir until they are all melted. Refrigerate for 1 hour to allow jello to partially congeal, then add all of the coleslaw you've made. Do not drain. Stir to mix. Add 1 cup cottage cheese, stir and pour into a rectangular shaped cake pan, then refrigerate overnight or for at least 6 hours

Use a regular table knife and cut Jello Salad into squares. Place on shredded lettuce with a spatula, add a dollop of sour cream and a cherry on top.This makes a very delicious salad, and one that even most children will like. Anything I could put a cherry on top looked enough like a dessert to make my children eat it all up.

Happy Passover and Happy Easter to everyone.

This sounds so unusual and I can't wait to try it. I love finding new ways to prepare the "same old" foods. Thanks and good luck with winning. Trish

We all like the Cherry Jello best, so I used that when I made your recipe. It turned out so pretty, and so delicious. Thank you. Lee
