You must be thinking what in the world is the difference? Coleslaw is coleslaw right?
Italian style coleslaw has no mayo, the end. It’s really just olive oil and vinegar with some seasonings and that’s it plain and simple.
To be honest I never grew up eating coleslaw as a child. I only started wanting it as I began cooking for myself in my twenties. I never was crazy about the traditional mayo type coleslaw and honestly most were so sweet it turned me off even before I went sugar free.
So why the sudden change to a coleslaw lover?
