Applewood Rubbed Ribs with Daikon Plum Slaw

Instead of a typical coleslaw, try serving baby back ribs with this crunchy daikon and cucumber salad. Daikon is a long, thin, white radish, originally from Asia, and is a nice complement to the slight sweetness of the dressing. Photo credit: Julie Deily from The Little Kitchen.
