First up in our Summer Salad series is this amazing Crunchy Vegetable Slaw. My friend Karen brought it over one night and I fell in love with it. I'm not usually a slaw girl, but this one has just the right balance of sweet, crunch, flavor and color. Karen bought it at the local deli, so it took a little bit to figure out what all the ingredients were, and how to make the dressing. I'm pleased to share this new favorite with you.
Put all your prepared vegetables, berries and seeds in a large bowl and set aside.
Now for the dressing:
Pour all your dressing ingredients into a small bowl and whisk together until smooth. It will still be quite thick.
Now, toss the dressing with the vegetable mix. I like to either scoop and mix with tongs, or put the lid on the bowl and shake until mixed.
Cover and place in refrigerator for at least an hour to let flavors blend (although I can never wait this long! I'm eating a bowl as I type!)
This slaw is a delicious side dish, or a meal unto itself accompanied by a slice of roasted garlic ciabatta!
