Classic Memphis-Style Coleslaw

We have zucchini growing in our garden, and when I think “zucchini”, I think “crab” cakes. And when I think “crab” cakes, I think coleslaw! This slaw was really good! So good that husband said “You made this slaw? It’s awesome!” It was a little heavy on the mayo for me, so next time I would use a little less. But I agree, it’s awesome!
