Summertime = pool time, barbecues, bonfires, and mosquitoes.
For those barbecues, you'll be needing something delicious to serve up with your hamburgers and hotdogs. How about this delicious vinaigrette coleslaw? It works great if you are going to be outside for the day because there is no mayo to go rancid in the sun. I made it a long time ago for a pig roast in grad school and one of my friends raved that it was the best coleslaw he has ever had. He was eating it straight from the bowl. But that's his opinion, you make the decision yourself.
And don't forget your bug spray!
