Monday Munchies...Memorial Day

I was sitting at a meal this past weekend and as I was eating some coleslaw, which I love by the way, it dawned on me that it's the epitome of a BBQ, and who doesn't love a good BBQ on Memorial Day?  Of course, we need to take a few minutes to remember what this holiday really means...

Land of the Free Because of the Brave Print
and although most of us have no idea what's it's like to have a loved one overseas fighting for our freedom, most of us can appreciate family time and be thankful for the time we are able to spend together.  Especially when those moments are few and far between these days.  

Anyway, back to the coleslaw.  With no fat, and a low carb option, it's really a great bulk food item.  Plus it's crunchy, which always adds a nice touch.  

This Copycat Chick-fil-A Cole Slaw recipe is amazing! This is the perfect side dish to any BBQ or potluck! I saw someone recently post a copy-cat recipe for this coleslaw, apparently it's really good!  It looks like your typical coleslaw.

Apple and Poppy Seed Coleslaw - Wonderfully tangy and refreshing, and the perfect side dish to any meal! This has the tangy and sweet going on.  This strikes me as super summer-y.

Tip: If you are invited to a BBQ, or any party/meal for that matter, offer to make a dish that you don't want to miss out on, or want to lighten up, that way you're in control!
