If you want a crowd pleasing side dish for your next summer BBQ, this crisp and refrershing summer coleslaw recipe is for you!  I used shredded red cabbage for this coleslaw to highlight it’s sweet flavor and bright color. Instead of using coleslaw mix, I chopped up an extra head of red cabbage I had in my fridge, and added some green cabbage and carrots for color. This beautiful and vibrant salad is great for your next summer potluck!
