Although it’s been a mild winter in Wisconsin so far (knock on wood!), that doesn’t mean I’m any less ready for warm, sunny weather. I think a lot of you will agree that it would be nice to trade in our coats and boots for shorts and sandals. Unfortunately, I can’t change the forecast, but our recipe this week is perfect for the winter doldrums. Bonus: this light, fruity coleslaw is a welcomed side dish as swimsuit season draws nearer. Whip up a batch and you just might be think you’re lying on a beach in Hawaii!
