It is definitely the season for side salads. We've been grilling almost every night for a couple of weeks and I'm craving all kinds of simple salads for side dishes. I've made this Cranberry Apple Coleslaw a couple times over the past month and I'm loving it.
I served this coleslaw with Hawaiian Grilled Chicken Sandwiches and Roasted Potato Salad. The whole meal disappeared in minutes and my youngest son (typically a non-coleslaw-loving kid) even requested a second serving of this coleslaw. This is a salad we will be making all summer long.
Cranberry Apple Coleslaw
Yield: 6 - 8 servings
1 16 ounce bag coleslaw mix, or 1 small head of green cabbage sliced very thin
2 medium apples, sliced very thin
1/2 cup dried sweet cranberries, or Craisins
1/3 cup mayonnaise
juice of 1 large lemon, about 3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the coleslaw and toss with tongs to coat, add the apple slices and cranberries. Toss once more to combine. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
