Here's another salad tip you may enjoy (enjoy my tip, damnit!) buttermilk and sour cream make an excellent dressing for coleslaw. Go easy on the sour cream-no more than a couple tablespoons to provide some body, and use buttermilk for the rest. If you're counting calories this will save you over an oil and vinegar based recipe, and certainly quite a bit over mayo. Besides, mayo is disgusting in coleslaw. And for fuck's sake, stop being such a miser with the carrots-put a reasonable number of them in the salw, and you won't need so much sugar. Sugar has no place in coleslaw anyway.
There, you enjoyed that tip, didn't you?
