Slider Slaw Salad

Slider Slaw Salad

What a fun idea to enjoy sliders without buns on coleslaw! Perhaps you have already done this but not as a salad. The zing of the coleslaw is tasty and comes together quickly as a perfect base for these beefy sliders. This recipe has been reviewed by Heart and Stroke Foundation Registered Dietitians.
