Did you know? Coleslaw comes from the Dutch koolsla, meaning “cabbage salad.” There are as many varieties of coleslaw as there are cooks!
The tip of the week is to add fresh cilantro to your traditional coleslaw – it gives it a fresh new taste!
Give it a try for your next bbq or potluck and see what your friends and family say about your updated slaw.
P.S. Do you know how to tell the difference between Cilantro and Parsley?
Cilantro’s leaves are rounded and Parsley has pointed leaves.
Cilantro is also called Coriander. In fact, the spice Ground Coriander is made from dried seeds of the plant.
