Oil and Vinegar Coleslaw

"Coleslaw" - Correctly spelled as one word, Coleslaw is a Dutch term meaning "Cabbage Salad". First seen in a 1770 recipe book. Mayonnaise styles are the more recent than Oil and Vinegar styles. Thus various preparations have a tart to creamy taste. Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia and Sweden have unique variations. In the Ukraine, Carrots, Apples and Cranberries are added. In the UK, you might even find Cheddar Cheese in the mix.
