    This slaw is soo pretty. While I typically stay away from slaw…I’d be inclined to try this just because of how it looks. My favorite summer salad is anything with watermelon and feta cheese!

      Oh I love a fresh watermelon feta salad too, it’s so refreshing. This one is light too, but citrusy with a little kick! Thanks Roxy.

      I’m sure it would be tasty using regular cabbage too, thanks Sonnie!
