Weekly Recipe #68: Curried Coleslaw with Green Onions and Cranberries

By Jeanne Foels, Marketing & Outreach Coordinator
This weekend, after picking up some beautiful green onions at the farmers market, I embarked on a quest to make a coleslaw worth getting excited about. Usually I skip right by the mayonnaise-drowned dish at picnics, so I tried to whip up the most colorful version I could.

Far from your typical listless slaw, this recipe is lively and fresh, full of pop from the cranberries, curry powder and those pretty green onions. For even more color, use red cabbage.
