Lauren’s Cranberry Cole Slaw

I spent a lovely June week at my dear friend Lauren Small’s in Baltimore. Lauren’s husband Don has a wonderful orto in which he grows lettuce, spinach, radishes, eggplant, etc. They also have a patch of star gazer lilies, which is oft-visited by local bunny rabbits and deer! One evening at dinner on the patio I even saw a fox! Lauren’s herb garden is right outside the front door and is loaded with things I love: basil, mint, oregano! She makes Gazpacho almost every summer evening–light and delish and cool to the palate. Hopefully, she’ll send me her recipe and I’ll put it on the blog too. This salad dish below she made for a barbecue party a week or so ago. Thanks for sharing, Lauren!
