The Dutch introduced coleslaw to America. Cabbage is the essential ingredient, and the Dutch settlers grew it in their kitchen gardens in what was then New Amsterdam. The word coleslaw comes from the Dutch, koolsla, meaning cabbage salad. Coleslaw by any name can be varied by adding raisins, chopped nuts, or bits of fruit, such as apple or pineapple.
