Super Easy 15 Minute Summer Cole Slaw


I’m cooking ribs and coleslaw for the 4th of July at my house today since I’m heading to the lake tomorrow. I wanted to make a really easy, but delicious, light coleslaw. I had a great idea that made my life oh so simple. Recently, I bought some new spices from Penzeys, (when I went to get a present for someone else-you know how that goes). I tried the “Country French Vinaigrette” dry spice mix which works great in this 15 Minute Summer Coleslaw. This recipe was a huge hit with everyone, including the kids.

Note: In Birmingham, Alabama, the Penzeys is located in Homewood.

  1. Yum, this sounds easy and delish — my favorite kind of meal! Summer has been so busy here too (doesn’t it get crazy working from home?!). Thanks for the great dinner salad!

  2. Hmmm, I meant to leave the comment above on your Steak Fajita Salad — sorry, not sure how to edit …? My daughter and I *love* coleslaw and are looking forward to trying this one too!
