I love coleslaw and I like to try variations and different recipes for it. This "Cranberry Cashew Coleslaw" is a wonderful blend of several things I happen to really like so for me it was a big winner! It's also easy as can be. Here is what you will need:
1 (16 oz.) bag of coleslaw mix
1 bunch of green onions, sliced thin, including the green blades
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup cashew pieces (could substitute chopped pecans or walnuts)
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbs. cider or white vinegar
2 Tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. celery seeds
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Place the coleslaw mix, green onions, dried cranberries and cashew pieces in a mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, Dijon mustard, sugar, salt, pepper and celery seeds. Pour over the coleslaw and toss to coat all of the ingredients. This will seem almost a little dry, but as it sits the water in the cabbage makes it moister. Cover and sit in the fridge for about an hour and toss again and it will be perfect!
This is so good with chicken and turkey or even barbeque and pork! This is a good summer recipe, but would be great for the holidays also!
