Side dishes are always my favorite to make! I feel like they highlight the main dish and make it even better.... even when your main dish is cheeseburgers or barbecue pulled pork sandwiches.

I decided to try a little something different with this slaw and make it with two of my kids favorite veggies . (I know.. my kids like veggies! I'm not going to I mixed this slaw with chopped florets of broccoli and shredded leaf kale. Tossed in a creamy and zesty lemon dressings and added some dried cranberries for sweetness.

You definitely need to try this one on your next burger, pulled pork, or chicken Parm slider night. It is an awesome side that I bet your kids might dig in for seconds on!

Zesty lemon and rice wine vinegar are the base of this dressing... with just a touch of sugar.

The colors alone in this slaw are fantastic!
