Creamy Coleslaw

This is a very basic, creamy coleslaw, nothing fancy here. But it is beautiful, with bright greens, purples, and orange. And it makes a great side to really almost anything, so it is a great go-to recipe.
And because this really is a basic recipe you can feel free to add other flavors to make it your own. This particular batch I added caraway seeds. You might try adding fresh ground pepper, dill or perhaps even some oregano. Oh yeah, one last thing, because this recipe is basically just fresh vegetables it is good for you!
