Coleslaw or cabbage salad (from the Dutch term koolsla meaning cabbage salad)) is a salad consisting mainly of coleslaw with a vinaigrette (or mayonnaise) sauce.

It is generally served as an accompaniment to fish dishes, burgers or bagels. The original recipe made from thin slices of cabbage, melted butter, vinegar and oil; as well as the term, appeared in the 18th century (“kool” in Dutch being deformed into “cole” in English). The recipe for coleslaw with mayonnaise dates from the mid-18th century.
