How to serve coleslaw at a party?

adenhailemariam | Jan 30, 2013 11:13 AM

I love a vinegar coleslaw that a local grocery store (Earth Fare) makes called Carolina Slaw. I want to serve it at a baby shower I am hosting. It has a tangy and bright flavor and it is bright itself with light greens to dark greens to the pink/purple of the red onion.

I would love to serve it but what can I serve it with? I've never been a big coleslaw eater and the only time I've enjoyed it other than by itself was the first time I ate it atop a veggie dog.

Maybe I can just not call it coleslaw and just serve it as a salad by itself? Seems a bit too vinegary for that.

The other savory things on my menu will be:
basil hummus
artichoke dip (judyfood vegan dip)
vegetables for dipping and snacking on
maybe a cranberry almond quinoa or sun-dried tomato/caper orzo

There will most-likely be a chicken dish since the mom-to-be seems to love chicken. Everything else (all the many sweets!) except for a cake I am ordering will be vegan.
