But not just any Coleslaw, this is loaded with the flavors of a summer BBQ!
I was serving this up as p[art of a tailgating football celebration buffet. BBQ Ribs, Brisket, Pulled Pork, Side Dishes and a chance to root root root for the home team. OF COURSE you needed a coleslaw. I was serving this up in January, so I wanted to add all the flavors of a summer BBQ that I could.
It's a very simple recipe. Takes minutes to put together. the real "cooking" (in this case, the melding of flavors) happens while the slaw rests comfortably in the fridge for a few hours, allowing all the flavors to nix mingle and meld into that classic of summer dishes and accompaniment to any BBQ.
And of course using that bag of slaw you find in the store makes this especially easy.

But first, for any big deal party (like a Chef's appearance in a post season football game), What a great way to display those appetizers on this three tiered food tray. Make your party planning something special for the eyes as well as the taste buds. Your food deserves it.
