Also you can just use one package of store-bought pre-shredded coleslaw mix in place all other coleslaw ingredients, purchasing the ready-made coleslaw mix will decrease prep time. adding in chopped green onions and cranberries. Of coarse this can be made anytime of the year omitting the cranberries!
