This coleslaw is so good. I grated cabbage. I didn't use walnuts. My son didn't like the cranberries but me and DH liked them. Thanks Jane :) Made for I recommend tag game

A very yummy cranberry slaw! I reduced to serve 1 and made with Jane's Apple Cheddar Quesadillas. I skipped the walnuts and my cabbage had carrot in it already. I also subbed Splenda in place of sugar with no problems. Easy and quick as a whistle to make! Made a great side dish the the apple and cheese pita! Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2009.

I tend to favor oil and vinegar slaws, but I found this tasty. I think that next time I might reduce the lemon juice just a bit, and I would add more cranberries - they seemed to get a little lost among the cabbage shreds! A very nice addition to my lunch.
