Wikipedia: Egg roll
Egg rolls are a variety of deep-fried appetizers served in American Chinese restaurants. An egg roll is a large, cylindrical, savoury roll with shredded cabbage, chopped pork, and other fillings inside a thickly-wrapped wheat flour skin, which is fried in hot oil. The dish is served warm, and is usually eaten with the fingers, dipped in duck sauce, plum sauce, or hot mustard, often from a cellophane packet. Egg rolls are a ubiquitous feature of American Chinese cuisine and are often served as free additions to American Chinese lunch special take-out combination platters throughout the United States, along with fried rice and fortune cookies.

Wikipedia: Coleslaw
Coleslaw (from the dutch koolsla meaning cabbage salad), also known as cole slaw or slaw, is a salad consisting primarily of finely-shredded raw cabbage with a salad dressing, commonly either vinaigrette or mayonnaise. Coleslaw prepared with vinaigrette may benefit from the long lifespan granted by pickling.
