I seldom make creamy cole slaw. My simplest cole slaw is finely sliced cabbage, salt and pepper, cider vinegar, and EVOO.

If I am more energetic, I might add shaved red onion or thinly sliced scallions, carrot, cauliflower, radishes, or even thinly sliced celery. I might make a proper vinaigrette.

I don't want anything sweet in my cole slaw.

Shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, and Best Foods mayo mixed with a little bit of rice vinegar for just a little tang. With pulled pork on a French roll.

I used homemade mayo (made with olive oil, the yolk of one egg, a bit of mustard, lemon juice), added about 1/2 c buttermilk, grated jalapeno pepper, shredded cabbage, carrots, some fennel seeds, a bit of sugar, splash of white wine vinegar, S&P, a few drops of Tabasco sauce. I could not bring myself to add butter (per my grandma's recipe--figured the mayo was rich enough). The funny thing about making mayo with fresh eggs is that the mayo is very yellow (not because of the mustard--I use dry mustard). I've made mayo using store-bought eggs, and it never was that yellow before. The coleslaw was very good.

+1 with just a touch of single cream to loosen the mayo
