This delicious Creamy Sweet and Sour Cole Slaw is a great slaw any time, but adding dried cranberries turns it into a perfect Holiday side dish too!
The dressing is tangy and sweet and flavourful. I have never had a cole slaw dressing with garlic in it before that I know of. It is not over powering – it lends just a hint of complexity to the taste.
Our traditional Christmas dinner always includes cole slaw. I saw this recipe in a little local newspaper flyer and it immediately caught my attention. You just never know where recipe inspirations are going to turn up. The whipping cream/mayonnaise combination intrigued me and I wanted to try it. Since I was thinking Christmas dinner I thought adding dried cranberries would be a perfect addition of another sweet/tart flavour. Turns out I was right!
You can certainly leave the cranberries out and add whatever other additions you like. Grated carrots, green or red pepper, onions are all classic additions to a cole slaw.
I couldn’t get enough of this cole slaw the first time I tasted it. Kinda like potato chips… you can’t eat just one!
I think I have a new holiday favourite cole slaw!
Pin it for later!
