When it’s springtime in the South, cabbage is plentiful and we use it. One of our favorite recipes is this combo of Asian slaw and barbecue chicken. Plus, it's easy to halve or double the servings as needed. —Paula Todora, Fort Worth, Texas
The fresh flavor and crunchy texture of garden vegetables star in this tart colorful coleslaw. Lightly dressed with vinegar and oil, it's a refreshing summer salad. My mom fixed it often when I was growing up...and it continues to be requested often.

This salad gets its pleasant crunch from ramen noodles, almonds and sesame seeds. "It's my most asked-for recipe," says Edith frost from Mountain View, California. "An adaptable main dish, it works well with chicken or turkey, too."
This is no ordinary, boring slaw! Bursting with flavor from fresh fruit, cilantro and red bell pepper, guests will rave over this summer slaw for days! For easier preparation, purchase packaged shredded cabbage. If you cannot find papaya, substitute mango. Taste of Home Test Kitchen - Greendale, Wisconsin
Corn and cabbage are a different combo in this creamy coleslaw sprinkled with peanuts. "This salad is especially tasty when I use homegrown corn I've cut off the cob," reports Patrice Ehrlich of Merced California. It's inexpensive, too, at only 39¢ a serving.
This cool, crisp coleslaw is a great compliment to any meal. “I adapted this colorful, tangy dish from a more time-consuming recipe I had. It’s easy to double or triple for potlucks, too.” Maryrose DeGroot - State College, Pennsylvania
