Lemon Coleslaw

Here is a refreshing summery coleslaw that was super tasty.  I love lemons and this was an awesome way to use one. I often buy a big bag of lemons at Costco and the kids are always asking me if they can squeeze the lemons. Who am I to deny them such pleasure?  Now...if I can only get them to clean up their mess afterwards...

 I'm hosting Presto Pasta Nights this week. Email me with your pasta recipes and I will include your recipe in the round up next Friday, July 22.  Just put a link to my blog and Presto Pasta Nights in your blog.

2 tbsp. water
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 lb. coleslaw mix
