Apple Walnut Slaw

A co-worker shared this slaw recipe with me. Now it's a favorite at my house, too. Apples, walnuts and raisins are a fun way to dress up coleslaw. —Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas

    Great! Lots of eye appeal. I added a little celery. I'd make again. Janet

    This Recipe is delisous. I made it one year with my Christmas dinner and it is requested for every family function since. Thanks to the person who submitted this keeper.
