Coleslaw sandwiches, not only healthy but are very easy to make.
Coleslaw salad simply means cold cabbage salad.
As per culinarylore.com, The term coleslaw came from the Dutch term koolsla, meaning cabbage salad. The kool part is the Dutch word for cabbage and the sla part is a Dutch abbreviation of the word salade. In the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, Dutch settlers flooded into New York, so much so that the city was originally called New Amsterdam. They brought with them their recipe for chilled cabbage salad, which today is a mixture of the shredded vegetable with mayonnaise, salad dressing, sour cream or buttermilk with vinegar, sugar and other seasonings added.
Thus coleslaw in simple terms means cold raw cabbage, carrot and onion cut into thin long strips and covered in a thick cold sauce.
Coleslaw is a healthy snack to munch on in the evening or have it in breakfast.
It can even be packed in your child’s lunch box. Just wrap it in cling film and pack in his/ her lunch box.
Normally coleslaw is made in mayonnaise.
However, there is also a healthy version to it and that is hung curd.
Hung curd is magical. It is used in variety of recipes be it sweet or savoury.
