This is the salad my mom has at every barbecue event and it is fabulous! I'm really not a colslaw fan and neither are my kids, so this is a great alternative. There are so many different flavors in this salad and combined it's just perfect! Don't make it too far in advance or you might end up eating the entire thing yourself, trust me. :) I served mine as a side to pulled pork sandwiches.
