How do you keep Coleslaw from going soggy?

When you’re ready to mix up your coleslaw, don’t just dump in the whole bowl of dressing into your salad. Instead, start with about 2/3rds, give everything a stir and then slowly add dressing until your coleslaw reaches the consistency you feel your coleslaw needs.

The longer the cabbage mix sits in the coleslaw dressing, the softer and less crunchy it will become. For best results, serve this coleslaw cold.
