Coleslaw or cole slaw or just slaw is a rather simple yet delicious salad (or even a side dish – for me at least). The basis for the coleslaw is cabbage and dressing (again – very versatile) which makes it easy to play with the ingredients. My best friend did so, and I used her recipe as the basis of my own, low-carb coleslaw.
“The term “coleslaw” arose in the 18th century as an anglicization of the Dutch term “koolsla” (“kool” in Dutch sounds like “cole”) meaning “cabbage salad.” The “cole” part of the word comes from the Latin colis, meaning “cabbage.” (Wikipedia)
The history of this side dish is not very long. It appeared with the creation of mayonnaise, and through the decades its ingredients varied quite a bit. The only consistent ingredients seem to be cabbage and mayonnaise.
This purple variation contains radishes and spring onions as well. The dressing I chose is predominantly made of sour cream. Though not the best keto option, it lowers the nutritive value of this salad (compared to all-mayo dressing). If you want to reduce the calories, even more, feel free to omit sour cream. If you decide so, note that it will have a more salad-like consistency.
