Memorial Day Coleslaw Recipe


Almost everyone gathers with family or friends for a picnic or barbecue on Memorial Day; its the holiday that kicks off a season of outdoor dining, lots of grilling, and plenty of salads and summer side dishes. Coleslaw, in its many varieties, goes well with almost everything served outdoors or at picnics, whether its pulled pork sandwiches, grilled steaks, barbecued ribs, or fried chicken. The following Apple Cabbage Slaw is very refreshing, and has a sweet and sour vinaigrette with crunchy tart apples. It can be made ahead, and is very easy to put together since it starts with a packaged coleslaw; the quick dressing has minimal ingredients and can be whisked or whizzed in the blender in a matter of seconds.
