I love KFC's coleslaw way more than I like their chicken! I've tried over the years to replicate their slaw, and finally think I've got it! It really does need the hour of refrigeration time, and is even better the next day. I like using the bagged slaw mix because it makes it super easy and quick. but you can definitely chop your own cabbage and carrots.
