Spring is here in the Bay Area and that means the beginning of picnic season. It has been warming up unseasonably fast this month in California and we are enjoying a lot more outdoors time with our family and friends.

This coleslaw recipe is a crowd pleasing dish that goes with any type of food. (I even put it on my BBQ tacos.)

  1. I love coleslaw (especially mayonnaise-based ones). I don’t usually add corn so I’ll have to try that! My favorite thing to bring to a cookout… hmmmmm. Probably beer brats. 🙂

  2. I’m not always a fan of coleslaw as it can vary greatly, but I love the ingredients in your recipe, Sandi!


  3. Looks fabulous Sandi!
