t’s a summer time classic, yet all too often colesalads is ruined when it’s just a boring lump of shredded cabbage smothered in a bland mayonnaise dressing.  Reinvent how you see this side by switching up your base (grill the cabbage, or give shaved Brussel Sprouts a try!) and make your vinaigrette or dressing new life by adding fresh herbs like cilantro and dill and creamy blue cheese. I’ve created four must-have colesalads recipes you should include in your next summer lunch or outdoor party.  I hope you give them a try and send me your reviews.  Happy summer!
