    How long have you let the stuff age? Finely diced onion in coleslaw mellows over a period of hours; big chunks, not so much. Jan 18 '15 at 0:43
  • You didn't mention what kind of coleslaw you made. Is it one with a clear or a creamy dressing? Sweet, savory, or vinegary? Does it contain apple? If not, you might want to finely dice a sweet, tangy apple such as a Pink Lady or a Honeycrisp and mix it in. The apple soaks up a lot of onion taste, and it compliments most coleslaws.

As the comment recommends, waiting will cause the strength of the onions to mellow.

If that's not enough, and you can't pick them out, the only other option is to increase the other ingredients.
