Expert Tips

  • Using your food processor with the S-blade will help give you the smaller, fine chop that is signature to the KFC® coleslaw. For the best results, pulse the vegetables in shorter increments until you get the chop you desire. If you don’t have a food processor, you can chop finely using a sharp chef’s knife for similar results.
  • We like to run our carrots under water after they’ve been chopped to rinse away some of the extra carrot juice that could tint the coleslaw orange.
  • This coleslaw tastes best when you make it ahead and give it time to sit for a while.
  • One-half small cabbage finely chopped, should yield 4 cups.
  • One small carrot finely chopped, should yield about 1/4 cup
