I’m getting ready for the summer and grilling season, which has me in the kitchen testing new light side dishes. Here is a delicious new take on a favorite classic, coleslaw. My slaw adds some shredded kale, the dressing is light and bright using fresh lime juice along with fresh jalapeno and olive oil. Using the food processor ensures that the jalapeno flavor is subtle and it doesn’t add much heat but lots of flavor. You’ll love to add this dish to your summer meals.
