Summer is here, and that means it's time to fire up the grill and gather with friends and family for some unforgettable cookouts. No summer spread is complete without a refreshing bowl of coleslaw.

Here are five unique coleslaw variations that will make your summer cookouts truly special.

Plus, all you need is a bag of shredded cabbage from the grocery store, and you've got the perfect side dish for the summer!

1. Honey Ginger White Balsamic Vinegar and Meyer Lemon Olive Oil Coleslaw with a Hint of Mint
Kick off your summer feast with a refreshing honey ginger white balsamic vinegar and Meyer lemon olive oil coleslaw. The secret twist? Fresh mint leaves. Imagine crisp cabbage (green or red, your choice) with shredded carrots and thinly sliced red bell peppers.

The dressing is a blend of our honey ginger and Meyer lemon, giving it a sweet and zesty flavor. The mint adds a surprising aromatic finish. This tangy and vibrant slaw pairs perfectly with grilled chicken or seafood. Trust me, it's a winner.

2. Cranberry Pear White Balsamic Vinegar and Blood Orange Olive Oil Coleslaw with Candied Walnuts
Want to add a bit of fruitiness and crunch to your cookout? Try this. Shredded cabbage and carrots tossed with dried cranberries, chopped apples, and candied walnuts. Yes, candied walnuts.

The dressing features our cranberry pear white balsamic vinegar and blood orange olive oil. It's sweet, tangy, and utterly delightful. Serve this with grilled pork or turkey. 

3. Greek Seasoning Olive Oil and Lemon Cucumber White Balsamic Vinegar Coleslaw with Feta and Olives
For a Mediterranean twist, this one's a must-try. Combine shredded cabbage with diced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, red onions, crumbled feta cheese, and Kalamata olives.

The dressing? A mix of our Greek seasoning olive oil and lemon cucumber white balsamic vinegar. It’s savory, sweet and refreshing, and pairs perfectly with grilled lamb or chicken kebabs. Plus, it sounds fancy. Impress your friends!

4. Tahitian Lime Olive Oil and Pineapple White Balsamic Vinegar Coleslaw with Jalapeños and Cilantro
Feeling adventurous? Go tropical with a kick. Shredded cabbage (Napa works great here) with julienned carrots, red bell peppers, fresh pineapple chunks, thinly sliced jalapeños, and chopped cilantro.

The dressing is a mix of our Tahitian lime olive oil and a splash of pineapple white balsamic vinegar. Sweet, tangy, with a spicy edge! Perfect with grilled fish or shrimp. Or put it on a burger!

5. Clementine Olive Oil and Marc de Champagne Vinegar Coleslaw with Pomegranate Seeds
Add a touch of elegance and a burst of color. This slaw combines shredded cabbage (Savoy for extra texture) and fennel with orange segments, slivered almonds, and pomegranate seeds.
