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!)
