There was cabbage in the farm store today!!
I have to admit that I've never had KFC coleslaw ( gave up fast food decades ago!). However, when I researched recipes for coleslaw, this one seemed to be the flavor-profile I was after and it IS delicious, whether it's just like KFC's version or not. It's good right after you mix it, but it's better the next day.
The cabbage in the farm store today was Chinese, which isn't typically used to make coleslaw, but it's what I had so I used it.
