Coleslaw is one of my to go salad for my husband that loves it more then I do. Coleslaw is a classic recipe and a delicious homemade coleslaw recipe is a must have in every kitchen. That is why I wanted to do the lemon and tomato coleslaw salad. You can find coleslaw at almost every party or gathering in the spring or summer time especially in cook outs.

Usually in our house hold we don’t have to wait till the spring or summer time to make coleslaw. So one day I was watching some one do a coleslaw a little different and I thought to myself wow my husband would love to try something like this but what I didn’t know was that my husband makes something like it for his black bean coleslaw. So I decided to tweak the coleslaw salad myself.

After you added everything you only need to mix all of it together. I used a metal bowl which are great when you mix and put it in the fridge. Remember to add the salt and olive oil to your tasting. It came out perfect then I put it in the fridge until the food was ready to be served.

What is good with this salad is that you can make it for steak or beef tacos , even with steak, or pork chops.

Now remember that you can add more if you are making it for a get together. You can also not add the lemon juice and olive oil till you are ready to serve it.
