Cooking Tip: Jalapenos vary tremendously in spiciness. It’s always safer to take a little taste of the jalapeno before adding the entire pepper. Also, remove the seeds to lessen the spiciness.

Keep it Healthy: This cabbage salad is like a slaw without the mayo. A vinegar and oil base instead of mayonnaise can also be used to trim the calories of other picnic salads like potato salad and macaroni salad.

Tip: To substitute fresh vegetables for the cole slaw mix, use 1 cup grated carrots plus 5 cups thinly sliced cabbage.
