It is almost the end of summer and bar-b-que's will be replaced by stews and chile cook-offs. I wanted to prepare a slightly different salad to serve with the grilled tilapia, and a tribute to fall with all it's beautiful colors. My husband is not fond of coleslaw with heavy dressings so I decided to make a lighter one. I do hope you enjoy this salad for a nice change of pace. I used my food processor for shredding and completed the task in no time.
