Bet you didn’t know this side dish was originally Dutch?

I love coleslaw on a hot day but the store bought kind is not my taste.
Did you know that coleslaw is named after the Dutch words kool (cabbage) and sla (salad)? Yes, this American barbeque favorite is actually Dutch!

For the dressing:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp grainy mustard
1 tsp white wine vinegar
For the salad:
1/4 head red cabbage, finely chopped
1/4 head white cabbage, finely chopped
2 carrots, grated or cut into tiny cubes
1 red bell pepper, cut into small cubes

Mix the mayonnaise, mustard and vinegar together for the dressing.
Place the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, add the dressing and toss until everything is just covered.
You can buy the cabbage pre-shred, just don’t use the dressing that comes with it.
