What most people think of when they hear the word coleslaw is the heavy, mayo-laden shredded cabbage side dish available at most deli counters. In reality, slaws are much more than that. They are a crisp mixture of veggies, lightly flavored with a tangy dressing. They are easy to prepare and relatively healthy. This stress-free side dish is best served straight out of the fridge when it is crunchy and cold.
