Sweet & Sour Rainbow Cole Slaw

Rose Mary Mogan


I created this slaw with ingredients I had on hand that I thought would compliment my husbands Fish Dinner. I am allergic to the fish but could eat the and the slaw.

He loved the fish, but the pieces were small, but he didn't complain. Said it was very good. I used panko bread crumbs and cooked it in the oven to make it crispy & served Stouffer's Frozen Mac & Cheese with it. He was happy & I was too. I added a bag of dried cherries to this slaw to add extra flavor & tartness. Great addition.
