You might have noticed that i have been posting Summer friendly salads for this week's blogging marathon which was totally enjoyed and approved by my kids. Yes this week's blogging marathon's theme goes for Kid's friendly - Summer salads. When summer season starts, we look eagerly for Summer fruits especially for mangoes and watermelons. We just love these two fruits very much and we never fail to buy them once they shows their heads in our farmer's market. Watermelon is everyone's favourite summer fruit. Once i picked Summer salads as theme for this week's blogging marathon, i planned myself to dish out a simple salad with watermelon to stick with the theme for this week.

Red Cabbage Coleslaw/Purple Cabbage Coleslaw

We are officially entered to Summer season since two days back, obviously i have been preparing some summer salads for our evening dinner as they are easy to dish out. I love to prepare my own dose of coleslaw at home. Coleslaw is a salad prepared mainly with finely shredded raw cabbage, which is usually served with a vinaigrette or mayonnaise dressing. Coleslaw is definitely a prefect summer salad as they are really very easy to dish out. This salad can be prepared earlier as they are easy to conserve and serve chilled for a meal. It can be served very well as side dish with grilled meats or fried meats or else they can be served along with French fries.Colselaw can be used in filling for making some sandwiches as well.

My last but not least sauce for this week's blogging marathon is this super easy Fry sauce. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Condiments on side as theme. After two delicious condiments, here comes one of the simplest and very quick condiment aka Fry sauce. Fry sauce can be prepared with simple ingredients, yes just with three ingredients. This fry sauce is ready to serve with your french fries, burgers or grilled meats. Though this sauce is a best accompaniment for french fries, you can serve this sauce very much with baked vegetables as well. This sauce is quite like the popular Cocktail sauce which makes a great addition to serve along with seafoods.
