Citrus slaw

Here’s a refreshing Citrus Slaw that pairs perfectly with whatever you’ve got sizzling on the grill! Fresh orange and lime juices give this side a tangy kick.

Too often slaws are overloaded with creamy dressing that contains more fat and calories than is really necessary. This recipe provides the colorful flavor that you love in a slaw without any extra fat or calories to weigh you down. Enjoy!
