Red Cabbage and Carrot Coleslaw

 

Today is the first of the month and normally that means a bonus recipe for blog subscribers only.  But this month, the first falls on a regularly scheduled blog Sunday so we have a special recipe for all of our Ankarsrum USA Blog guests.  This recipe will also give you a taste of what our bonus recipes are like.

Today is also special because July 4th is just a few days away and with it comes a celebration of our nation’s birth.  July 4th for our family is filled with great food and tons of board games and a wonderful day spent with great friends.  This coleslaw recipe will be one you will want to add to your holiday menu for sure.
