The word "coleslaw" in Coleslaw Recipes comes from the Dutch word,
"koolsla", meaning cabbage (kool) salad (sla). It is a simple vegetable
The word entered our English language from the Dutch immigrants to New York City in the late 1700s.
These cabbage recipes quickly spread from state to state and north into Canada. Since then one recipe version or another of this simple coleslaw salad has become a featured side dish all over North America.
Besides cabbage, other vegetables can be added (and sometimes fruit/nuts) to vary the flavour.
• Half a head of Cabbage, either green or purple or some of both – finely shredded
• 2–3 large carrots – finely shredded or 1 bag shredded Carrots
• 2 Green onions- finely diced
Coleslaw Optional ingredients:
- finely diced apple
- a few handfuls of slivered almonds or crushed peanuts
- a handful of raisins or craisins
THE FIRST ONE IS MAYONNAISE BASED AND PRODUCES A CREAMY DRESSING.
THE SECOND ONE IS VINEGAR BASED AND PRODUCES A MORE TART LIQUIDY DRESSING.
TRY BOTH AND CHOOSE YOUR FAVOURITE.

If you find the mayonnaise dressing a little bland - you can add a bit of vinegar or lemon juice to increase the tartness. On the other hand - if you find the vinegar dressing too tart - you can sweeten it with a bit more sugar.
