  • Toast almonds in the preheated oven until golden and fragrant, about 10 minutes. Cool completely.

  • Stir cabbage, cranberries, celery, green onion, red bell pepper, and toasted almonds together in a large bowl.

  • Whisk mayonnaise, honey mustard, honey, basil, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl until dressing is thick and creamy. Pour dressing over cabbage mixture and stir to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until flavors combine, about 3 hours.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute walnuts for the almonds. You can substitute green bell pepper for the red bell pepper.

The only change I made to this recipe is I used broccoli slaw and cabbage both. It was awesome. I served it at a bridal shower we're 22 of some of the best cooks we're attending. Everyone raved about it :-) I will most certainly make it again. Read More

Nice change from the traditional cole slaw with a mayonnaise dressing. I didn't have any honey mustard so I just used regular mustard and added more honey...worked fine. Enjoyed the sweetness from the honey and the crunch from the almonds. Very nice. Read More

I was looking for a quick slaw recipe. Substituted 1 tbsp Dijon mustard and used 2 tbsp honey with pre cut cabbage. Loved the flavour! Looking forward to making this whole recipe! Read More

Note: I'm rating the dressing. The dressing was easy and tasty (didn't have honey mustard so went with some fancy mustard I did have). Threw in some raisins and shredded cheese and it worked very well. Read More

Made recipe as instructed and the results were amazing! What a wonderful change from traditional coleslaw. The crunch from the almonds and sweetness of the cranberries work well together. I took the dish to a family function and everyone was lined up to split the leftovers to take home. This will definitely have a permanent spot in my side dish rotation. Thank Mike! Read More
