I brought this to a friend's house for dinner. Everyone agreed it was the best coleslaw they've had.
- In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons water, sugar and salt.
- Combine shredded cabbage, carrot, scallions, cranberries and optional nuts in a large bowl.
- Pour dressing over cabbage mixture and toss well to coat.
- Allow coleslaw to sit at least 15 minutes before serving, tossing occasionally.
