This light and delicious coleslaw is more than just a cabbage salad. This refreshing summer slaw is made with a variety of colorful vegetables and a light and easy dressing.
To save time, consider using a blender or food processor to chop the vegetables. To chop in an electric blender, cut the vegetables into chunks and fill the blender about half full. Cover the vegetables with cold water to within about an inch to the top. Pulse until you reach the desired consistency. Dump the vegetables into a colander to drain and repeat with the remaining vegetables.
