Rainbow Cole Slaw

Rose Mary Mogan


I created this recipe just to be a little different from my regular cole slaw recipe.

I added poppy seeds, dried cranberries and apple Cider vinegar instead of the regular, then I added just a splash of red cabbage,and it all worked for the good.

It was really great with the SLOW ROASTED Pork Roast THAT I MADE, AND THE LOADED RED & GOLD POTATO SALAD, I will get them posted very soon.

No matter what you are serving this adds a bit of fiber to the diet. You can use Low fat Mayo to save calories.

No matter your preference, this is a very tasty COLE SLAW.
