Slaw Salad Dressing--Tasty and Easy


Easy and Healthy Slaw Dressing

 As the weather gets warmer we start thinking about recipes that are easy to prepare and well suited for outdoor meals from barbecues to picnics to family dinners. Tasty sides are key to the ease of serving up these meals. Finding recipes where the dish or the elements of a dish can be prepared ahead, even a day or two before, is ideal.


One such recipe that is a go-to for me is a salad dressing for slaws. You can make it a couple of days ahead and then add it to a prepared slaw you buy at the store from traditional cabbage slaw to a broccoli slaw. It is also easy to prepare a slaw from any raw vegetable you prefer at home and then add the slaw dressing just before you are ready to serve up. Any leftovers can be added as a topping to burgers, fajitas or sliders. Below is the easy to prepare slaw dressing:
