Coleslaw is a staple of summer picnics. Crisp and refreshing, it’s the perfect accompaniment for barbecues and as a sandwich topping. Its name comes from the Dutch koolsla, a shortened version of koolsalade which means cabbage salad. When Dutch colonists came to America, at the beginning of the 18th century, they planted cabbages all along the Hudson River and used it to make this salad, amongst other dishes.
Step 1: Vegetables
Remove the heart of the cabbage, and finely slice the leaves. Peel the carrots and julienne them. Remove the dill from the stalks, and finely slice it. Combine these ingredients with the raisins in a large bowl.
Step 2: Dressing
Whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise, and white vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
