Cranberry Walnut Slaw Recipe

Cranberry Walnut Slaw Recipe

I make this every year for the holidays. It's a healthy alternative to traditional coleslaw made with mayo. For a alternate flavor combination, substitute toasted sesame seeds and sesame seed oil for the walnuts and walnut oil, and rice wine vinegar for the white wine vinegar. —Bob Nopper, Salem, New York
