Gingered Summer Squash Slaw
Crisp slaws are the perfect picnic take-along, but most are heavily loaded down with creamy dressings. My flavorful Gingered Summer Squash Slaw is a lighter choice that’s flavored with lots of ginger and a hint of mint. This veggie-packed side is low in calories, but can be lightened further by substituting fat-free Italian dressing for the oil and artificial sweetener for the honey.
A mandolin can be used to julienne the squash and carrot, but when time is really short, simply grate the vegetables in the food processor for a colorful confetti-style slaw. The slaw is great alongside grilled burgers and chicken, but also makes a crispy base for teriyaki-basted grilled salmon fillets or tuna steaks.
Makes 8 servings
Note: Salad can be prepared up to 24 hours before serving.
