Cole slaw - cause of funny taste?

Made a basic Cole slaw yesterday, and it tasted fine.
Today I added some fruit, veg & nut garnishes and went to have a bit as a snack and it tasted odd, but I couldn't identify the flavor.
I wondered if was the garnishes or caraway seeds in the dressing.
Then realized it resembled the smell of cooked cabbage.
Does anyone know the source? Could the cabbage be old and giving off that characteristic brassica family smell? How to fix, if possible?

Hm, very strange. I'm not quite sure what the culprit could be, but my suggestion would be to start tinkering! Maybe try adding a sweet vinegar like apple cider or red wine vinegar to try and counteract the weird flavor?
