This is also considered (Hot Cabbage Salad) and was first introduced to America by the Holland Dutch when they settled in New York in 1624. They called it "Kool-slaa" and considered this their "great salad dressed with vinegar."

This is a recipe I found in my Grammie's Betty Crocker Picture Book.

6From: Shelia Senghas:
As I was walking towards the steps she was standing on the porch.
I greeted her and I asked her if she wouldn't mind holding the bowl so that I could take a photo of it. Then I asked her to move closer towards the bell. As I took a couple of photos I told her what it was for. She just smiled and got real happy and said, "I am going to be famous, I am going to be on the internet."

Shelia made this with apple cider vinegar and loved it too.
