Crazy Coleslaw

Brandi Kirkpatrick


This is one of my favorite recipes. I do not like traditional coleslaw at all and this was a great alternative. You don't have to put the chicken in, but if you are wanting a quick meal it's great.
The dressing is even better if you make it a day in advance.
I also like to throw some mandarin oranges and occasionally cranberries into the mix, sooo yummy!
However, once the dressing is on it does not hold over well. So only dress what you need or make sure it's all eaten that day!
