My grandmother, Mommom Boyd, is well-known for her cole slaw. She chops the cabbage, carrots, and onion extra-fine and makes the dressing creamy and somewhat sweet. It's highly requested by church members and friends, and is an absolute must-have at every family gathering. When I was a kid, Mommom would sometimes mix in red cabbage, too. I would marvel at how the bright purple bits would pop off our plates next to the orange carrots.
