Picnic Pleasers: Ham and Coleslaw Hero

So summer is getting hot, but there is nothing better than sitting and relaxing under the shade of a big tree and having a picnic with your family! I think with the economy the way it is, we forget that our greatest blessings are in whats around us. Our family. Being able to walk to the park. Enjoying Gods creation all around us. So enjoy this recipe with your family, and let me know how it goes! :)

Ham and Coleslaw Hero
Grocery List:
For Coleslaw:
1/2 cup plain low fat yogurt
2 Tbsp light mayonnaise (try the olive oil kind, it's awesome!)
1 Tbsp wine vinegar
2 tsp honey-Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
8 oz coleslaw mix (about 4 cups)

1 loaf Italian bread (about 1 lb)
6 oz thinly sliced reduced-sodium ham
1 jar (12 oz) roasted red peppers, well-drained and cut in strips
3/4 cup thinly sliced red onion

How to make it:
1. Coleslaw: Whisk yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard and pepper in a medium bowl. Add coleslaw mix and toss to coat well.

2. Split Italian bread horizontally. Arrange ham on bottom half, then peppers and onion. Cover with coleslaw and bread top. Cut loaf in four portions to serve.
