What’s so great and different between regular coleslaw and Dorothy Lynch Coleslaw?
I have a great coleslaw recipe, that is a knock off of the one you have at KFC. It’s the only one I have made up until this point. I started playing around with the recipe and added some Dorothy Lynch dressing. It turned out amazing! It resembled the look of Pink Coleslaw, if you have ever had that in the Florida Keys?
The Dorothy Lynch added a zip to it that we all just loved. So much so, that I contemplated adding barbecue sauce to the pulled pork sandwiches, and decided against it. If I can make any suggestion, I would say to drizzle a little more Dorothy Lynch over the top of the slaw.
