"Sure, what can I bring?"

I’m sure you’ve asked that question many times after receiving countless invitations to barbecues, especially before a holiday weekend.  Isn’t it great to have several go-to recipes that you’re comfortable with, so you can fulfill the host’s request without stressing out?  Plus, you usually want something that won’t go rancid if it sits in the sun for a few hours.

I love the cole slaw recipe I recently added to my blog, but I wanted to have another in my arsenal that didn’t include mayonnaise.  Once again, Bobby Flay came to the rescue.  This version is light, tasty and mayo-free, so no need to worry when it’s sitting out on the picnic table.  

Just in time for the upcoming holiday weekend!  You’re welcome 🙂

Cole Slaw with Cumin-Lime Vinaigrette
slightly adapted from Bobby Flay

For the vinaigrette:
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 dashes hot sauce
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

1 bag coleslaw mix
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Pour in vinaigrette and toss until combined.  Chill until ready to serve.
