Crunchy Colorful Cranberry Salad Recipe


Convenience products make this Cranberry & Vegetable Slaw quick and easy enough for the busiest cooks. Not only is it delicious, it is festive, crunchy, and colorful. It is the perfect salad to serve at a buffet for the holidays, or to take to a potluck or to a friend’s when asked to bring a salad. The dressing can be made ahead, and the nuts can be toasted ahead. The actual salad takes only about 10 minutes to assemble, since a package of coleslaw mix (cabbage and carrots) and a bag of broccoli florets make up the bulk of the salad. Ready cooked and crumbled bacon, available in the salad section of most grocery stores can be added in place of cooking and crumbling bacon at home, which is another big time saver, not to mention the fact that there won’t be an odor in the kitchen, and there will be no pans to wash. The only real work to this salad is coarsely chopping the cranberries, which can be done very quickly in a food processor by pulsing on and off a few times. Once the salad ingredients are in the bowl, the dressing can be tossed in just before serving.

Cranberry & Vegetable Slaw is a good change from a jelled or tossed salad. Cranberries are traditionally served at holiday meals starting with Thanksgiving; this salad is a unique way to serve them; there will be no leftovers and there will be requests for the recipe.
