Every thing about COLESLAW | Vahrehvah :


Coleslaw simply called slaw in American dialects, meaning cabbage salad, and arrived here via the USA. Cabbage was, according to the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America, a popular crop "throughout the colonies", and Dutch settlers, who grew it "extensively along the Hudson River" liked to serve it in the familiar, old-country way: the first mention of coleslaw in the USA dates from 1785. The word "coleslaw" arose in the 20th century as an Anglicization of the Dutch term "koolsla", a shortening of "koolsalade", which means "cabbage salad" where “kool” means cabbage and “sla” means salad. 

Coleslaw is the epitome of what a good slaw should be: green cabbage, a few carrots, nothing more. It's nothing flashy, but that's as it should be. Slaw is the back-up dancer to flashy barbecue numbers. It’s cool creaminess, crunchy texture, and tangy flavor balances out the richness of smoked and grilled meats. Early versions seem only to have used a vinaigrette, but mayonnaise now seems to be the standard dressing, in Britain at least – preferably the gloopy sugary kind that smothers all other flavors, leaving you unsure whether you're eating cabbage or carrot. Coleslaw is frequently served as a side dish in traditional meals in many countries, and can be seen in major fast food chains as well.

Preparation Tips:

  • Salting vegetables like cabbage and letting them sit for an hour or so helps to drain off excess moisture, so the finished dish is a lot less soggy.

Health Tips:

  • Cabbage ideal for weight loss. With only 33 calories per cup, cooked cabbage is low in fat and high in fiber. It is definitely a smart carb.
  • It is a brain food. Cabbage is full of vitamin K and anthocyanins that help with mental function and concentration. These nutrients also prevent nerve damage, improving your defense against Alzheimer’s disease, and dementia. Red cabbage has the highest amount of these power nutrients.
  • Cabbage helps keep blood pressure from getting high. The high potassium content helps by opening up blood vessels, easing the flow of blood.
  • There’s some truth in the old wisdom that carrots are good for your eyes. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the liver. Vitamin A is transformed in the retina, to rhodopsin, a purple pigment necessary for night vision.
  • The regular consumption of carrots also reduces cholesterol levels because the soluble fibers in carrots bind with bile acids.
  • Carrots clean your teeth and mouth. They scrape off plaque and food particles just like toothbrushes or toothpaste. Carrots stimulate gums and trigger a lot of saliva, which, being alkaline, balances out the acid-forming, cavity-forming bacteria. The minerals in carrots prevent tooth damage.
  • Mayonnaise has a high fat content, eating it then aids in nutrient absorption. Bear in mind that vitamins A, D, E and K are all fat-soluble, meaning, these nutrients need fat for them to be dissolved and subsequently be made bio-available. Eating mayonnaise in moderation then ensures that the fat-soluble nutrients you take in daily through your diet do not get wasted and instead be absorbed efficiently by your body.
