What does Coleslaw Mean?

Coleslaw salad simply means cold cabbage salad.

As per, The term coleslaw came from the Dutch term ”koolsla”, meaning cabbage salad. ”kool” is the Dutch word for cabbage, and ” sla” 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 shredded vegetables 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.

Hung curd takes an hour or so to get ready but if you do not have that much time then keep the curd in a strainer and do your other preparations which will take about 10 to 15 minutes. During that time too, excess water will drip from the curd and you will be left with thick curd.

Coleslaw Sandwiches taste great both ways. You can have these plain or grilled, as per your preference. Tastes good either way, but definitely, the grilled ones get more votes.

Now, preheat the air fryer for 3 minutes at 180 degrees. Put these trimmings. Air fry for 3 to 4 minutes depending on the quantity. You can even toss once in between. And voila, your super crunchy breadsticks are ready. Serve them with soup or just like that.
