A trick I learned from America's Test Kitchen is to salt the shredded cabbage and put it in a strainer over a bowl to drain for at least an hour, then rinse it. It draws out the excess water so the cabbage stays crisp and the dressing doesn't get watery.
I've also had good luck using Greek yogurt instead of mayo if I want a creamy dressing.
