What is coleslaw?
Coleslaw is a cold salad traditionally made from sliced or chopped raw cabbage mixed with a dressing made with mayonnaise or vinegar. It often includes other seasonings and ingredients, such as onions, carrots, or apples.
The word slaw can be used to mean the same thing. Sometimes, slaw is used to refer to a similar cold salad that does not include cabbage, such as carrot slaw.
Coleslaw is most commonly served as a side dish, such as for barbecue, or a topping, such as for sandwiches. In the U.S., it’s associated with cookouts and picnics and known as a common side dish at some restaurants.
Example: My mom makes a tasty coleslaw that includes carrots and onions.
Where does coleslaw come from?
The first records of the word coleslaw come from the late 1700s. It comes from the Dutch koolsla, a word that combines kool, meaning “cabbage,” and sla, a contraction of salade, meaning “salad.” Coleslaw is, simply enough, a salad made with cabbage.
The word cole ultimately comes from the Latin caulis, meaning “plant stalk” or “cabbage.” It can be used to refer to a number of plants in the genus that includes cabbage, kale, and other related vegetables. Related words include kohlrabi, a type of cabbage, and cauliflower.
