Fruity Broccoli Slaw

Fruity Broccoli Slaw

Fruity Broccoli Slaw

The last couple of weeks, I have really been trying to clear-out the pantry and fridge. I had a part of a packet of almonds, another packet with cranberries and an apple. All needed eating. This salad was my solution. Larry and I both really liked it! 
I used about 4 cups of fresh broccoli florets instead of the broccoli slaw mix, because we like them better. Normally, I keep a fair amount of pecans on hand. I think toasted pecans would be great in the place of the almonds. Crisp, crumbled bacon would be nice in this, too. The colors would be really pretty at the holidays! If you don't like cranberries, you could substitute raisins. Or, you could chop up one green and one red apple. Lots of options!

1 (12 ounce) bag broccoli slaw mix OR 4 cups broccoli florets
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 Granny Smith apple, cut into small chunks
1/2 cup slivered almond
bottled or homemade* coleslaw dressing, to taste

Combine all ingredients. Chill until ready to serve.

*Homemade Coleslaw Dressing
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 - 1/4 cup vinegar

Blend all dressing ingredients well. Keep refrigerated.
