Don’t you just love Pinterest? Its become my personal online cookbook where I’ve categorized hundreds of recipes into specific categories.
On my Pinterest feed, I’ve been taking delight in seeing so many different varieties of summer salads. I’m a sucker for a cold summer salad filled with the freshest vegetables and tossed in a creamy dressing or vinaigrette. Especially when the vegetables and herbs come from my garden
Recently, I’ve started seeing many coleslaw recipes running through my feed that had me craving for some cold, creamy, and crunchy delight.
I often like to spice my salads up that’s exactly what I did for this Mexican summer coleslaw.
A Mexican Summer Coleslaw
This coleslaw doesn’t have a sweetener added. Instead, it’s spiced up with fresh from the garden green onions, cilantro, and freshly chopped jalapeno.
It does have a bit of a kick so feel free to add or omit the jalapeno to your family’s liking.
Since it did have too much of a kick for Big and Little brother, I made them a tomato and cucumber salad marinated in a red wine vinaigrette. Delicious just the same.
A spiced up summer coleslaw perfect for your next outdoor barbecue or potluck.
