ROMAINE AND APRICOT SALAD

A wonderfully light and delicious salad of romaine lettuce, broccoli slaw with an apricot dressing.  This attention-grabbing salad compliments any barbecue, grilled chicken or pork.  It's irresistible at a potluck or any backyard bash.  This will be a star at my Memorial Day cookout, for sure! 

This salad's success is in the flavors.  Apricots are light and sweet and are present in the dressing as well as in the salad.  The romaine and broccoli slaw are perfect together, giving the salad some texture and crunch.  You will also love the look of the salad.  The orange colors pop against the green and make for one beautiful salad.
