This salad can be made anytime of the year, but it is really great made with in season veggies. A mildly spicy coleslaw that is excellent for a barbecue. Leftovers (if there are any!) keep in the fridge for 2 days. My brother, who hates anything fishy, read fish sauce, surprised himself by liking this a lot. He even copied the recipe to take home. So, there you are!
