Hot dogs. Burgers. Pulled pork. Is there a quintessential summer dish that coleslaw doesn't pair well with? It adds a much-needed crunch (and lovely brightness) to heartier dishes and if we’re being totally honest, sometimes it's the only vegetable on our BBQ plate. But there’s nothing sadder than a bowl of gloppy, store-bought slaw at the end of a picnic table. Thankfully, in this tangy coleslaw recipe, we lay off the mayonnaise and use a zesty vinegar base instead. The result? A lighter and more flavorful take on a classic. Best of all, it comes together in a flash and can be made up to four hours in advance. Boom, instant BBQ upgrade.
