Company Cole Slaw

Recipe from: Weewah
Servings: 10 to 12

Creamy slaw with the addition of citrus, tangy craisins and walnuts. I had this at a friend's house last Thanksgiving and after taking a small spoonful just to be polite, I had 3 large helpings and a new favorite recipe.

1 16 ounce bag coleslaw mix
⅔ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sugar, scant
2 tablespoons vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
½ to ¾ cup chopped walnuts, to taste
1 6 ounce bag craisins
1 15 ounce can mandarin orange segments, drained

Whisk your dressing ingredients together till blended and toss it with the slaw veggies. Chop the walnuts into pea sized pieces, add them with the craisins to the slaw, and toss to incorporate. Drain the mandarin oranges and rough chop them before adding them last (because they're very fragile).

Let slaw marinade in the fridge an hour before serving so the dressing can loosen up - cooking time is marinading time. If necessary, thin dressing with a little milk, but it may lessen 'shelf-life'.
