We’re welcoming the familiar flavors of summer with this easy, gourmet take on BBQ. Our succulent shredded (or pulled) chicken sandwiches are infused with smoky, spicy barbecue sauce. We’re topping them with a delicious coleslaw made with green cabbage, vinegar, sugar and a combination of creamy mayonnaise and piquant whole grain mustard. The mayo-mustard duo also dresses a colorful potato salad, made with a bevy of multihued fingerlings and finished with bright chopped scallions. (Depending on what’s freshest at the farms near you, your fingerling potatoes may be yellow, red, purple or two to three of these colors combined!)

2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the chicken cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Slice the potatoes into ¼-inch-thick rounds. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on an angle, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Cut out and discard the cabbage core; thinly slice the leaves. Halve the buns. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and mustard.

3 Cook the potatoes & make the potato salad:


Add the potatoes to the medium pot of boiling water. Cook 12 to 14 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

While the potatoes cook, in a large bowl, combine the cabbage, vinegar, sugar, remaining mayonnaise-mustard mixture and all but a big pinch of the green tops of the scallions; toss to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes.
