With summer upon us here and picnics in our future the worry of keeping foods in the heat from spoiling is on my mind. Salads and slaws really bother me since we recently had a food poisoning scare and I don’t want to repeat it! My answer to this problem is vinegar based cole slaw instead of using a mayonnaise or dairy recipe. This quick and healthy option is just what I needed. And the fact it tastes great is a clear win win for my family. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

This vinegar based cole slaw is just the ticket for taking your salads to a picnic and not worrying about them going bad in the heat. Healthy and easy this slaw also tastes great!

- In a small bowl whisk together vinegar, mustard, honey and olive oil and set aside. In a separate bowl mix together cabbages, carrots, green onions and celery seed.
