This Apple Cranberry Almond Coleslaw Salad is another happy recipe result from Operation Clean-Out.
I love coleslaw salad.
Best part? This coleslaw salad has no mayonnaise whatsoever!
Its sweet, crunchy and tangy deliciousness might even win over the hearts of people like my husband, who hates mayo and won’t touch normal coleslaw with a 10-foot pole because of it.
I had 2 bags of dried cranberries sitting in my pantry. December Holidays = Cranberries, right?
Well, that’s what I’m going with – alas, welcome this Apple Cranberry Almond Coleslaw Salad.
Can you guess what else I had a surplus of? Yup, that’s right, pistachios. 😉
In the case of our salad however, we went with almond slivers.
TIP: The lemon vinegar dressing does help the apples from browning – BUT I’d advise to chop the apples up right before serving the salad.
This will be our last recipe post before the Christmas weekend and on behalf of my family we wish you a very Merry Christmas. I hope it is filled with plenty of love and laughter.
