It was important to salt the shredded cabbage for our Basic Creamy Coleslaw to remove excess water before dressing it. Allowing the salted cabbage to sit for at least one hour drained off most of the liquid. For the dressing, cutting the mayonnaise with a bit of sour cream improved the texture and added richness and a pleasant tang. We balanced the plain white vinegar with a small amount of sugar.
