I found this refreshing twist on coleslaw at a local grocery store and tweaked it to fit my family's taste. You can substitute raisins for dried cranberries. When it's available, I use a prepared apple cider salad dressing to make this dish even easier! —Susan Bickta, Kutztown, Pennsylvania

  • 1 package (14 ounces) coleslaw mix
  • 1-1/4 cups chopped fresh kale
  • 1 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons thawed apple juice concentrate
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Place first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk remaining ingredients. Pour over coleslaw mix; toss to coat. Refrigerate, covered, at least 2 hours before serving.
Test Kitchen tip: This recipe makes quite a bit of dressing; adjust as you like for more or less.
