Coleslaw, sometimes simply called slaw in some American dialects, is a type of salad consisting primarily of shredded raw cabbage. It may also include shredded carrots. Coleslaw is generally eaten as a side dish with foods such as barbecue, French fries, and fried chicken. It is also a common sandwich ingredient, placed on barbecue sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs along with chili and hot mustard. It is sometimes seen in delicatessens on variants of the Reuben sandwich – with coleslaw substituting for the sauerkraut and dressing, the meat being either pastrami or corned beef, and the sandwich commonly called “Rachel” instead of “Reuben” (also simply “Corned Beef Special”). A variation of coleslaw made with vinegar and oil is often served with pizza in Sweden.
