Summer Veggie Slaw

At one of my recent trips to my local farmer's market. There was a vendor selling awesome peelers that make the perfect julienne cut every time!  

It makes preparing slaw so easy! I wasn't given the peeler. I bought it, so this is not a sponsored post. I just love sharing cool products that make my life easier with you all.

Way cool huh? I love using it for making this Summer Veggie Slaw salad. I got it at the San Diego Little Italy farmers market. I wish I had the name of the vendor. If you have a chance to snag up one of these babies, I highly recommend it!

To make a wonderful fiesta summer slaw, use any veggies you want. I used Zucchini, red peppers, carrots, radish, red onion, cucumber, and broccoli. I use this mix in my wraps, taco's, salads, or just as it's own salad with a vinaigrette. I love eating foods of similar texture and shape. It changes the way it tastes. Making a slaw of in season veggies, makes it so easy to get in all your daily veggies! Enjoy!
