Derived from the Dutch words for cabbage ("kool") and salad ("sla"), coleslaw is the perfect accompaniment to outdoor cooking. Its refreshing mix of cabbage and creamy dressing offsets the heat and spices of barbecued meat, and it's one of the main ingredients in Memphis pulled-pork sandwiches. Food editor Susan Spungen prepared this recipe for mustard slaw -- the Memphis version of this classic side dish -- served at Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q in Decatur, Alabama. Like most slaws, this one tastes even better the next day.
