coleslaw_cropI love coleslaw, and there are so many different ways to make it, though the dressing aspect remains the same, vinegar, a little sugar, and, in the modern version, mayonnaise. Reportedly the Romans ate it with eggs added to it, whether cooked or uncooked, it doesn’t say. (Source: The Food Timeline click on “Coleslaw”).

I use home made vegan mayo in this recipe. Though it adds a bit more fat, the addition of apple cider vinegar gives the Slaw a bit more of a punch.
