This colorful, two-cabbage slaw makes a refreshing treat for warm days and summer celebrations, yet also works wonderfully for fall. Unlike many mayonnaise-based coleslaw dressings, the cider vinaigrette dressing makes Cranberry and Walnut Coleslaw remarkably crisp and light. Dried cranberries and sugar give the coleslaw a delightfully sweet flavor, while walnuts provide an earthy complement and offer a deliciously crunchy source of nutrition. This keeps for about 5 days, covered and refrigerated. It is very good with roasted chicken and cornbread.

Serves 6

1 cup coarsely chopped California walnuts
2 cups green cabbage, finely sliced
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup sugar

  1. Mix the dressing ingredients together.
  2. Put the coleslaw ingredients into a bowl and toss with the dressing.
  3. Cover and let refrigerate about 3 hours before serving.
  4. Stir and drain off all liquid before serving.
