Coleslaw is a recipe that was created in New York City around 1650, when the city was under Dutch rule and was still called New Amsterdam. The Dutch then occupied the southern part of the Manhattan peninsula and used the banks of the Hudson for their vegetable crops. Cabbage production was very important: the vegetable was easy to produce and Dutch cuisine made great use of it. It was the Dutch immigrants who therefore invented Coleslaw, whose name derives from the contraction of the Dutch words: kool for cabbage, and sla for salad (or lettuce), which gives koolsla and which was written Coleslaw.
