Up there with pasta salads and potato salads, coleslaw is a tried and true picnic staple. It’s easy to make, works as a wrap, sandwich or burger filling and can be served as a main or a side. It is also one of those wonderful salads that are best made in advance so can last the distance.
With so many coleslaw variations from Asian coleslaw incarnations to this creamy, crunchy coleslaw recipe, it’s no wonder this versatile and adaptable salad ensemble is a picnic go-to.
As this coleslaw is loaded with seeds and nuts, it’s a hearty dish that can be served as a main dish with some sides. Think antipasto style – bread, slow-roasted tomatoes, dips such as hummus, red peppers etc with the slaw as the main dish.
