As a change from mayonnaise-laden slaw, I created this refreshing alternative. It uses many of the garden vegetables I grow, so it's also economical. I serve it at our family reunion each Fourth of July, and it's always a big hit at church socials. —Sharon Payne, Mayfield, Kentucky
It's simple to put a refreshing salad on the menu when you follow this rapid recipe from Mary McGeorge of Little Rock, Arkansas. Brown rice, coleslaw mix, apples and nuts make an appealing combination when coated with a sweet orange dressing.
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
Whenever I saw my mother mixing up a big bowl of coleslaw, I knew she was expecting a houseful of guests to share our meal. Those were always exciting times for me since I loved company! Besides, this slaw was one of my favorite treats at any time.
FOR A soup and salad supper, a picnic or a buffet, this recipe can be modified to serve any number.
I often make it for just the two of us, and it works well. Tasty and colorful, it's a welcome addition to any meal.
