New Netherlands Cole Slaw Salad

Kim Biegacki


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.
