Similar to cloning the cole slaw at KFC, the secret technique for duplicating Cracker Barrel's delicious slaw starts with slicing the cabbage into very small pieces. A mandoline works great for this or use whatever slicing contraption you have. Slice the heads of green and red cabbage on the thinnest setting, and then chop those strips into small bits. The carrot can be shredded using a cheese grater. Mix it all up and then let the cole slaw chill out for several hours so the mixture can get its flavor on. An overnight chill is even sweeter.

I made this exactly as written. It was creamy and delicious. I think I won't add all of the dressing to the cabbage next time, maybe reserve 1/4-1/2 cup and add just before serving. We use this to top pulled pork sandwiches

Your KFC version was my favorite cole slaw, but this one is above! The celery seeds gives it a nice flavor. Thank you
