The running debate among cole slaw fans is whether to salt and drain the cabbage before adding the dressing.
The directions for salting the shredded cabbage are easy but a bit time consuming: Place the shredded cabbage in a colander, mix in some salt until it’s evenly distributed, then let the shredded cabbage sit to allow the water in the cabbage to drain away. The salted cabbage is then rinsed and the water is either drained away, squeezed out, or spun out with a salad spinner. You may sacrifice some of the texture of the cabbage but you end up with less liquid pooling in the bottom of your serving bowl.
If you have the time to salt, rinse and drain the cabbage before mixing the slaw, go for it. But sometimes you need something you can throw together quickly and this buttermilk cole slaw recipe does the trick. If this cole slaw lasts long enough for liquid to pool in the bottom of your bowl, you can always drain it off.
