Can you believe the long weekend is already here? I mean – when did that happen? Is it me or does it feel like summer is going to be here and gone in the blink of an eye? Well the good news: summer means: barbecues, picnics, get togethers with friends and family and piles of memories to be made.
As you can probably tell I love summer. I’m going to be home all summer with my three girls and we have TONS planned to help keep up busy all summer including a few picnics. That means I’m on easy meal preparation, and delicious food to keep them going, and going, and going… you know what I mean. 😉
When you’re heading to your next picnic or barbecue it’s always important to arm yourself with food you feel good about. This easy peasy salad fits the bill and comes in at 1 SmartPoint per serving, so you can feel good about what you’re loading up on!

This easy and refreshing side is 100% portable which makes it a picnic favourite in our house or if you’re going to a pot-luck! You can easily double it for large crowds or double it and save it all week as an easy re-ady made side to lunch or dinner. I love this on top of my pulled pork sandwiches, a side to my grilled chicken with Sweet & Smokey Barbecue Sauce, or at pot lucks served alongside Turkey Meatballs. The possibilities are endless!
Broccoli Slaw is an easy choice when going through the produce sections at my local grocery store. Meal plans become easier, I know i have healthy side choices for the week, and the kids love the extra crunch this gives over your classic coleslaw. What are your go to easy sides for the week?
