Cabbage salad, or cole slaw or coleslaw, is a favorite salad on picnic tables in the U.S.
It’s also a popular to add to sandwiches.
I’ve not seen it in France.
There are 2 vegetable salads that are common here.
One is carrot salad. That’s easy.
The other is fennel salad which would cause most Americans to give a blank look. Fennel?
I like them both but mon mari is not partial to the fennel salad.
Besides, I always seem to have carrots around…. Often too many.
Mine has a bit more tang than the traditional French version.
We like strong flavors.

It’s been hot here – 40C (104F).
I have a routine during hot weather.
When I get up in the morning, I go around the house, take all the screens out of the windows, and open the windows wide. I open all the doors and turn all the fans on to get the air circulating.
A few hours later I close all the shutters to keep the sun out and all the windows to keep the hot air out.
As the sun sets I open the shutters to let in whatever light is left.
When it’s dark, and finally cooling off, I open the windows and put the screens back in.
Not surprisingly, this routine lets in a few critters…. Which I then do my best to encourage them to go back outside.
This little guy was on the outside of the screen when I went to put it back.
I was careful….
He’d been in the bathroom earlier. Poor thing was confused.
I was happy to get him back outside.
