Tasty Cole Slaw 5_1

Coleslaw is a dish that mostly has a crunchy texture. Between the carrots and the cabbage you have a nice bit of popping going on after taking a bite. I added walnuts to the recipe to give it another layer of crunch but on the softer side. Throwing in some cranberries helps to give the coleslaw a certain level of sweetness and brightens up the taste buds.
