Savoy Cole Slaw

Founding member Joanne McAndrews shared another "keeper" recipe she found on foodnetwork.com. The combo of local Savoy cabbage and scallions with cilantro in a tart and creamy lime dressing makes for a perfect summer slaw.

Preparation

Visit the Food Network site for the full recipe, and pretty pictures. Here I'll include the list of ingredients and note any possible Fair Shares substitutes.
