WHAT DOES SLAW MEAN IN ENGLISH?

slaw

Coleslaw

Coleslaw is a salad consisting primarily of finely-shredded, raw cabbage, and dressed most commonly with a vinaigrette salad dressing. Prepared in this manner, coleslaw can be pickled for up to four weeks if it is stored in an airtight container. Another way to make coleslaw is to use foods that already contain vinaigrette: mayonnaise, for example, is commonly used, but it lowers the shelf-life and raises the glycemic index as it is a high-carbohydrate food.
