Fruity, Creamy Coleslaw

This is such a beautiful accompaniment to any kind of roast...



You will need about four cups of shredded cabbage or one bag of prechopped coleslaw mix (to be honest, I make it easy on myself and buy the pre-shredded stuff. )

Dressing:


One cup mayonnaise (to lighten the recipe use low fat)
Two tbsp sugar (to lighten recipe, substitute unsweetened apple sauce)
one tsp salt
pepper to taste
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 cup low fat milk

Whisk together leave in fridge until ready to put the salad together.

To assemble salad add one bag coleslaw mix, one small drained tin mandarin oranges, 1/2 cup halved maraschino cherries or dried cranberries, one granny smith apple chopped into small pieces, one cup toasted almonds and the salad dressing.

Delicious and perfect with turkey!

Right before serving add one cup of toasted slivered almonds to the salad.
