I would imagine there is tons of sugar in that but how do you get that watery quality
Way back when, I did time in the col's army. The cole slaw is really simple: cabbage, carrots and their dressing. You throw the vegetables in a buffaloe chopper, turn the crank a few times, add dresssing, viola! instant cole slaw. The dressing is just mayo, sugar and vinegar, salt, pepper. The watery-ness comes from the salt leeching out the liquid from the cabbage. Thats why the longer it sits, the more watery it becomes.
I really like "asian" style slaw. Mix cabbabge, carrots, jicama (sp?) with a dressing made with sweetened rice wine vinegar, sesame oil (just a little), lime juice, cilantro and red pepper flakes. Grill a steak. slice it thin and serve over the slaw.
