READY IN: 4hrs 30mins
Recipe by GinnyP

I started with a 'Top Secret Recipes' recipe (thank you, TWoolfe) and made two changes suggested by a contributor to TSR. This is my favorite homemade coleslaw of this type! (Cook time listed is actually time for refrigeration.)

It's unanimous my whole family gave this one 5 stars. We love KFC coleslaw and this one is the closest to it. I looked at the other KFC recipe and decided to try yours because it has tarragon in it and KFC's coleslaw does have tarragon in it. Thanks so much this one is definitely worth repeating.
