Coleslaw, or cole slaw, is a salad made from a base of raw grated cabbage and usually a smaller quantity of grated carrot, in a mayonnaise dressing. Variant recipes can include onions, bell pepper, pineapple or apples as additions. Nuts and dried fruit can add textural contrast and color.

The cabbage may be shredded or chopped. Optional ingredients may be sliced, shredded or chopped depending on type.

Alternative coleslaw recipes may feature a vinegar-based salad dressing instead of a creamy one.
