Italiensk Sallat (Cole Slaw)

When I was growing up my mother used to make sandwiches with this sallad. I loved it and we called it Italian sallad. It was made with shredded carrots, shredded cabbage, a little bit of mayonnaise, mustard and soured cream, a pinch of salt and pepper. I even added some shredded onion. It was quite fast to make. Now I realize it is what we call Cole Slaw and use as a side with meat these days. However my mother would make Smørbrød with this sallad when I was growing up in Norway. Sometimes she would make two sallads, this one and Fruktsallad (Fruitsallad) and make a tray with half of each. It felt so festive. I have the Fruitsallad recipe here on my website as well.
