“Independence Day” and a Book Contest!

The 4th of July is an American tradition, so what better way to celebrate than by preparing something delicious from American Vegan Kitchen by Tami Noyes? It will be a busy weekend and I don’t want to spend the holiday weekend cooking. I want to make something quick and easy that everyone will love. The Mustard Mac Slaw from American Vegan Kitchen is just the thing. It’s a favorite in our house — we can’t seem to get enough of the slaw’s tangy mustard dressing. As you can see in the photo, it’s a pretty salad, too, and ideal for summer meals. Leftovers taste great too — (on those rare occasions when there are any!)

I plan to serve the slaw with the Smoky Joes from my book, Vegan on the Cheap. (I’ll do a separate post about that recipe soon). Both the slaw and the “Joes” are loaded with flavor, easy to make, and can be make ahead, giving me a special kind of Independence Day — independence from spending all day in the kitchen!

BOOK CONTEST: If you want to try this yummy slaw (and the other great recipes in American Vegan Kitchen), here’s your chance to win a copy of American Vegan Kitchen by Tami Noyes.  To enter, just leave a comment on this post and tell me: What is your favorite food of summer? A winner will be chosen at random on July 12th.  Good luck! (and Happy 4th of July!)
