Red Cabbage Slaw

Do you have a go to cole slaw recipe? I do, this one!  I think I made it at least 5 times this summer.  When my CSA basket contained a beautiful head of red cabbage, I decided to branch out and find a new recipe.   This recipe was so easy using my newest kitchen "toy", a Vitamix.  I've been eying them for a couple of years and finally took the plunge.  For those of you who are QVC shoppers, you'll know what I mean when I say it was on easy pay.  Those purchases never seem to sting quite as bad or at least so I tell myself.

What beautiful colors and great flavors!  The cranberries and nuts make a delicious addition to this tangy cole slaw.

Red Cabbage Slaw

 1 small head red cabbage, thinly sliced and chopped
 1/2 cup grated carrot
 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used greek yogurt)
 1/4 cup dried cranberries
 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
 1 tablespoon milk, or more as needed
 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
 1 teaspoon white sugar, or more to taste

  1. Combine cabbage, carrot, mayonnaise, cranberries, walnuts, milk, cider vinegar, and sugar in a bowl; stir well. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 4 hours.
