Chick-fil-A Cole Slaw

Jump straight to the recipe.

January 18, 2016 was a sad day for fans of Chick-fil-A cole slaw. The company announced that it was removing cole slaw from its menu to make room for more items. This was a devastating blow to Chick-fil-A fans who needed to get their creamy cabbage fix somewhere else.

Chick-fil-A along with their announcement released a recipe that you can make at home though. At the test kitchen, we’ve been using this recipe for the last couple of years and it’s a great one. We think that you should chop up the cabbage a bit finer than most bags of “cole slaw mix” but it does great at barbecues as a side, on a burger or hot dog, or to cool your mouth off from some spicy wing sauce.


  • 4 teaspoons vinegar (white distilled)
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 bags (10 oz bags) finely shredded cabbage, shopped to ¼ inch
  • ¼ cup finely chopped carrots


Whisk vinegar, sugar, mustard, and salt together until sugar is dissolved. Add mayonnaise and whisk to mix. Add cabbage and carrots. Mix to combine. Refrigerate for 2 hours and serve.
