Summertime and I’m all about easy and quick delicious food to share with family and friends. I love to create an array of make-ahead salads perfect accompaniments for cookouts and picnic; no fussing in the kitchen yet no skimping on taste either. My healthy slaw with Undon noddles fits all my requirements for a great summer salad, quick, easy and delicious.
