ColeSlaw

ColeSlaw

 

You can use this salad dressing for coleslaw, carrot salad or broccoli salad. The secret ingredient is celery seeds.

Coleslaw has not always been known and called as coleslaw. It was derived from the Dutch word koolsalade or koolsla which means cabbage salad. But originally, this Dutch word for coleslaw also came from the Latin word caulis, which means cabbage.

During the 1800s in England, coleslaw was known and called as ‘cold slaw.’ However, the word ‘cold’ evolved to the word cole, another progeny of the Latin word caulis.

It was only during late in the 19th century that this crunchy cabbage dish was called coleslaw in the United States. Goes perfect with the Pulled Pork.

Ontbijtkoek (literally breakfast cake) is a Dutch cake made with rye flour, spices honey and molasses. It says breakfast but you can eat it anytime of the day. It’s eaten more so as a cake slice and sometimes eaten on your bread. Also adding a slice to Sudderlapjes is good to. Most people spread some butter on top, but it is eaten plain as well.
