Favorite Spring/Summer Salad ~ Cilantro Cole Slaw!

I have to say the flavor is one of the things I love most about my Cilantro Cole Slaw, but then again I do really LOVE cilantro! But there are so many other things that makes this recipe fabulous.

Like the fact that it is dairy free for those of you who are skipping dairy for a while. Plus, being dairy free there is less concern about refrigeration when enjoying a relaxing day in the sun. Another amazing thing about this recipe is that it is rich in Omega-3s as the dressing is made with olive oil.

And the best part, besides the cilantro of course, is that you can easily substitute another herb or oil to fit your flavor and diet preferences.
