A picnic classic, coleslaw. When done well, it’s sublime, when done poorly it’s watery and gross.
The trick is get rid of some moisture up front by salting the cabbage and then squeezing some of the water away. It’s also helpful to combine at the very last second.
Serves a small crowd. Takes an hour and a half end to end, mostly waiting
