When I think about salads, cabbage is not the first thing that comes to mind but it can be used to make some good salads. Coleslaw is perhaps the most common cabbage based salad. There are many recipes for coleslaw but at its base it seems to be shredded cabbage, carrots, mayonnaise, white wine vinegar and sugar. Coleslaw is also a common side served with fish and chips so I included it in my fish and chips dinner. I made a few substitutions and additions to my coleslaw. Since I was already using dill in the meal and I had some left over I decided to add some to the cole slaw. This creamy dilled coleslaw was good and it went well with the fish and chips dinner.
