Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Spray a small skillet lightly with olive oil cooking spray and place over medium-low heat. Cook and stir almonds in the skillet until lightly golden brown and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl to cool.

  • Stir cabbage, cranberries, green bell pepper, celery, and chives in a salad bowl. Toss toasted almonds with cabbage mixture. Whisk mayonnaise, honey-Dijon mustard, honey, and poppy seeds together in a small bowl. Stir dressing into slaw until coated. Season with salt and black pepper.

Cook's Note:

This is a fresh and fabulous-tasting coleslaw. Family members who would never touch coleslaw ate this coleslaw. Unless you have a nut allergy, do not omit the toasted almonds. Surprisingly, though it may seem the cranberries are, the toasted almonds are the crown jewel in this recipe.

Just mixed this up for dinner and it's delicious! I did have to change a few things but nothing major...I used a bagged slaw mix and I omitted the celery b/c I was out of it. Also I didn't have chives on hand so I used green onions (about 4 b/c I love an onion-y flavor in my slaw. As for the honey-Dijon mustard well I didn't have any of that either lol but I did have regular Dijon mustard AND honey on hand so I made some up and proceeded w/ the recipe. Don't skip toasting the almonds as they really give this a wonderful nutty flavor. Great mix of flavors and textures. I will def be making this again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Delicious! Unlike some other recipes, you can eat it right away and don't have to wait while the dressing and salad "get to know each other". I chopped up the dried cranberries and used a combination of red and yellow peppers (since I didn't have green on hand) and thoroughly enjoyed the flavors. Read More

Made it for a family bbq - it was super good! I used bagged slaw and didn't add celery but I don't think that would change the outcome of the recipe at all. The dressing is delicious Read More

Terrific flavors! Used a bag of slaw mix and since I did not have honey Dijon mustard just Dijon mustard I added extra honey. Also omitted the poppy seeds. Will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing. Read More

This was good!! I don't think I have ever had a coleslaw that used honey mustard but it was nice and different:) I didn't have the dried cranberries but I did have dried apricots that I chopped up and used. Also used green onion instead of chives. Great and I love having this in the fridge to snack on as well! Read More
