Creamy Sweet & Sour Cranberry Cole Slaw

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!
