  1. 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.
  2. 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.

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 combin...
