From the Dutch koolsla, coleslaw is a salad of shredded cabbage mixed with mayonnaise. It is the archetypical picnic and barbecue salad.
A great way to use up those salad ingredients in the fridge. Remember to "dress" the salad, don't "drown" it! Looks pretty served inside a lettuce leaf cup. - 30 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
