How To Eat The Rainbow

I love this slaw. It screams SUMMER and RAINBOWS!

Red cabbage. Orange carrots. Yellow corn. Green cilantro.

Corn is great all summer and will be perfect for this Labor Day side. I like corn raw but you can cook it on the grill or boil it. No matter how you slice it (ha!) you will end up with a crunchy, flavorful, oil free pile of goodness.

Note: some people hate cilantro. I totally get it. One way to mitigate the cilantro-ness is to add chopped scallions or red onions. Also marinating the slaw for an extra 30 minutes mellows it out. But if that is just too much to bear, use parsley instead.
