Test Kitchen Tips: Don’t love Miracle Whip? Use mayonnaise instead. Cool factoid: The term “coleslaw” is derived from the Dutch word “koolsla,” literally translated as “cabbage salad.” The term has evolved to refer to many types of crunchy, shredded-vegetable salads that hold up well after being dressed.
