Coleslaw is recipe created in New York about 1650, when the city was under Dutch rule & is still called New Amsterdam.Cabbage production is very important: vegetables are easy to grow and Dutch cuisine is very beneficial. 

Coleslaw was invented by Dutch immigrants, and its name comes from the contraction of Dutch words: cole for cabbage, and salad (or lettuce), which gives coleslaw salad and which spells cabbage salad.
