How to make a tasty Coleslaw salad at home

Coleslaw salad began to appear in the early nineties in the United States of America as a natural result of the abundance of fatty fast food, so there must be a light side dish.

The coleslaw salad consists of cabbage and carrots, and they can be changed according to tastes. The main and constant ingredient is mayonnaise, and the name coleslaw is of Dutch origin.
