The word “cole slaw” comes from the Dutch koolsla, which means cabbage salad. We enjoy this nourishing dish often and in as many different ways as there are cooks at Frog Holler!
The pictured version has finely chopped cabbage, grated carrots and beets, finely chopped summer onions, toasted sesame seeds, and a light dressing of oil, vinegar, honey or sugar, salt and pepper. A mayonnaise dressing has become more familiar in America. Either way, enjoy loads of nutrition and flavor in this classic summer picnic dish. (If using mayonnaise dressing, be sure to keep cole slaw cold until serving.)
