Salade De Chou Rose (Cultured Pink Continental Coleslaw)

My favorite way to do this coleslaw is as PINK Coleslaw. You can leave out the purple and red veggies and simply get a coleslaw, but this is prettier. Europeans are not inclined to dumping mayo in their cabbage and I found that although I despised coleslaw growing up in the USA, I found I really loved the European version with it’s vinegar kick. This is one step further as it is fully fermented, so the vinegar is actually replaced by the natural probiotic cultures from the cabbage and other vegetables.
