I don't have a low fat version only the one the chicken house (hungarian style) that calls for oil, vinegar, sugar. I suppose these could be altered, I have made it using Ideal sweetner before but have yet found a way to substitute the oil.
Some of these sound interesting. and I will also have to experiment.
I have a version of that Japanese coleslaw. Chopped cabbage, mushroom, green onions chopped up in bowl. Then I toast sliced almonds in a dry non-stick pan on medium (watch carefully) and same with sesame seeds. Instead of ramen noodles, I buy the wasabi wonton strips you can find in the crouton section of the grocery store. They are 30 cal for 2 tbsp. Instead of the very, very salty version of the dressing, I take plain low-fat ranch and put some low sodium soy sauce in it, about 1 tbsp of each. I also like to cook up a chicken breast with minced garlic, minced ginger, black bean sauce and a bit of soy sauce to make the salad a meal. I`ve done salmon with the ginger, garlic, black bean as well for the salad. Always good. I think it`s the only salad I make that doesn`t have cheese in it and I don`t miss it.

I often make a peanutty asian dressing for coleslaws (works well w/any green salads and cold noodles as well). Not a precise recipe, so tweak to your personal taste:
about 1/4 cup natural unsweetened peanut butter (I use salted) 1/2 cup rice vinegar (or white/cider vinegar) 2 Tbs flavorless oil (light olive, grapeseed, or canola) 2 Tbs soy sauce 1-2 Tbs brown sugar, honey, or equivalent other sweetener, to taste (i've used splenda granular) 1 Tbs roasted (dark) sesame oil 1" square fresh ginger, grated 2-3 garlic cloves, grated or minced freshly squeezed lime juice (start with half a lime) salt, pepper, chili-garlic sauce if you like it spicy
Mix it all up in a bowl or shake in a jar. Taste, make adjustments... Toss w/shredded cabbages, carrots, red onion, bean sprouts, whatever, top with toasted sesame seeds, chopped roasted peanuts, and chopped fresh cilantro.

Depends on how creative you want to be. I use chopped cabbage, carrot, and sometime add apple and chopped walnuts to the mix. For the sauce, Malt vinegar ,sesame and celery seeds. Try adding your favorite lite salad dressings, just enough to moisten cabbage mix. Fruit vinegarette dressings work well. Marzetti makes a lite slaw dressing if you like more traditional.
