Outstanding, Susie! Love the flavors in this coleslaw. Just enough crunch and soooo colorful. Will make this again! THX for posting it!

VERY yummy and super easy. My own tastebuds prefer a little less onion flavor, so next time I might use only one scallion. However! I ate this coleslaw over three days, and by the third day there was a perfect balance of flavors. I especially like the occasional tang of the cranberries. Thanks for posting this; I'm delighted I adopted you for PAC Spring 2007.
