One of my favorite things about summer are the many varieties of salads and slaws there are. From fruit salads, to macaroni salad, potato salad…all sorts! But my favorite…it just has to be coleslaw. I don’t know why but I just love the flavor and how well it pairs with the many entrees of summer like fried chicken or even steak. This coleslaw recipe that I want to share is actually one straight from Kraft. It’s wonderful! Something to be said about making your own versus just buying the pre-made kits or a tub from the Deli. This slaw is wonderful because it features fresh fruit, crunchy apples and tart cranberries.
Creamy Apple Cranberry Coleslaw
1 cup Kraft MIRACLE WHIP Dressing
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1-1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 pkg. (16 oz.) coleslaw blend (cabbage slaw mix)
1 medium crisp apple (such as Granny Smith, Braeburn or Fuji), chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries (I used Craisins)
Whisk salad dressing, milk, vinegar and sugar together in a small bowl until well blended. In a large bowl, add coleslaw blend, chopped apple and cranberries. Pour prepared dressing over top and mix together until well combined. Refrigerate until serving, approximately one hour.
