I was digging in my recipe box looking for a quick salad for the holiday weekend. I found one, but I cannot say I created it. Did you know “Cole Slaw” comes from the Dutch for Cabbage Salad? I didn’t until recently. I don’t know where I came upon this recipe, frankly. Scribbled on a scrap of paper and tucked into my tin box of tear-out and overheard recipes. I enjoyed it and hope you will, too!
