Marie Hattrup, a field editor from Sparks, Nevada, gives a new twist to this slaw, which she serves warm. The mild mustard flavor and pleasing blend of crisp-tender vegetables and toasted pecans is a nice complement to fish or ham.
My daughter gave me the recipe for this delightful salad. The sweet dressing nicely coats a crisp blend of broccoli slaw mix, carrots, onions, almonds and sunflower kernels. Crushed ramen noodles provide even more crunch. It's a smash hit wherever I take it.

Marie Siciliano of Westerly, Rhode Island needs just four items to toss together this crunchy coleslaw that gets a sweet twist from dried cranberries. The shredded broccoli mixture is lightly coated with convenient prepared dressing.
This slaw is always in demand at home and for potluck functions. People enjoy the crunchy texture and the sweet-and-sour zip. Plus, it can easily be made ahead of time.—Rose Purrington, Windom, Minnesota
Year-round, our family always goes for this crisp, refreshing salad. With a tangy vinegar and oil dressing., it has wonderful homemade flavor. When Mom made it years ago for our family of seven, it was rare to have leftovers.
Everyone loves this festive, colorful coleslaw. It not only looks good, it tastes great, too. Crisp vegetables covered with a light creamy dressing make a refreshing side dish you'll be proud to serve.

The first time I made this main dish, my son's friends cleaned out the salad bowl—I didn't get even a taste! The next time I made it, I knew why it had disappeared so fast: The crunchy cabbage, tender tidbits of ham, subtle sweetness of honey and zesty hint of mustard make a perfect combination of tastes and textures. (Be sure to serve yourself first!)
As a change from mayonnaise-laden slaw, I created this refreshing alternative. It uses many of the garden vegetables I grow, so it's also economical. I serve it at our family reunion each Fourth of July, and it's always a big hit at church socials. —Sharon Payne, Mayfield, Kentucky
