How is May already halfway over?
Memorial Day is coming up which means I’ve got a countdown calendar on my phone telling me how many days I get to live in white pants again. Not that I’m a fashion rule follower by any means, but officially wearing white bottoms means that summer is here and a) I’m getting ready to be on a boat for at least 13 hours that day while b) eating all the picnic foods. (Keeping my fingers crossed I don’t spill anything on my white pants. Seriously, it would be miracle if I actually didn’t.)
This simple slaw is one of my favorite combinations and a healthier take on the traditional heavier coleslaw. The crunchiness from the combination of carrots, cabbage, and onions makes it the perfect slaw by itself or served alongside a burger or sandwich. The creaminess is still there from the dressing combination – it’s made with Hellman’s new Carefully Crafted Dressing & Sandwich spread – so it’s eggless, non-GMO, and cholesterol-free. (you can check out the nutrition smart label here.) I added edamame as a nice way to switch up a traditional slaw and for an extra dose of plant protein. The slaw packs well too – making it not only great for a summer party, but as a perfectly portable lunch or snack to-go!
