Fresh Summer Coleslaw!

With many backyard bbq’s and summer celebrations – salads are always on the list!  Rather than purchase pre-made salads, homemade salads allow you to control the ingredients you are using.  Sometimes pre-made salads are higher in saturated fat, sodium and sugar, all nutrients we want to try and limit in our diets.  Try this homemade coleslaw for your next backyard party.
