Coleslaw Recipe

Coleslaw, a beloved side dish, traces its roots to the Netherlands, where it was initially known as “koolsla.” Dutch immigrants brought this cabbage-based salad to the United States in the 18th century, and over time, it evolved into the popular coleslaw we enjoy today.

Coleslaw’s versatility lies in its adaptability to various cuisines and occasions. The core ingredients, shredded cabbage and carrots, serve as a canvas for creativity. Whether creamy or vinegar-based, coleslaw can incorporate a range of additional elements, such as apples, raisins, or even jalapeños, offering a diverse spectrum of flavors and textures.

Notes & Tips

General Tips: When chopping the ingredients, stop after 10 seconds and check consistency. Stir using the spatula and chop further if required.

Coleslaw is a year-round delight, but its crisp freshness makes it particularly appealing during the warmer months. It's a staple at picnics, barbecues, and summer gatherings, providing a cool and crunchy contrast to grilled meats and other hearty dishes. However, its lightness also makes it a refreshing accompaniment to heavier meals in any season.
