Cranberry Orange Slaw

Similar Tray // White Bowl

I don’t think I will ever get enough cranberries! I love them so much. It’s too bad that I can only find them around the holidays. I do try to buy as many as I can and keep them in the freezer. But while they are available, I try to use them in as many dishes as possible including this Cranberry Orange Slaw.

Cranberry Orange Slaw is a wonderful side dish for ham, roast chicken, or grilled salmon. It is also a terrific accompaniment on fish tacos or a chicken salad sandwich. And I can totally see using this dish as a topper for a BBQ chicken or pulled port sandwich. There are so many ways to use this versatile side dish since it is so full of flavor.

It’s also super simple to make, which is a plus during the holidays, right? All you need is…

1 12oz bag of fresh cranberries

One orange, seeds removed

1/2 cup white sugar (Substitute 1/2 cup xylitol or erythritol if desired.)

1 bag slaw mix (I use the kind with red cabbage, white cabbage, and carrots.)

3 tablespoons mayonnaise

Wash the cranberries well and remove any stems.  Cut orange into quarters. Squeeze juice of orange into a mixing bowl. Chop cranberries and orange in food processor. I keep it at a rough chop instead of letting it get too emulsified. Pour into bowl with orange juice. Use a cutting board to give a rough chop to the slaw mix. Add slaw mix, sugar, and mayo to other ingredients. Mix well. Refrigerate for about an hour before using.

We hope you love Cranberry Orange Slaw as much as our family does. Let me know in the comments how you plan to eat it. If this recipe looks interesting to you, please check out our other recipes in our Recipe Index.

Happy Weekend!

Happy weekend, everybody! While I have a little more computer work to do today before I can officially start my weekend, I’m ready for it! Today is a work-from-home day for me. That means I am able to go ahead and put on my weekend wear. Glory!

This long cardi is one of the best purchases I’ve made at recently. It is part of their Knox Rose collection. It is super soft and goes great with casual or dressier outfits. And the price is $27.99. The subtle grey stripe is a little hard to see in the photographs, so here’s a close-up.

This cardi also comes in black with a white stripe, which would be really cute with a white tank and your favorite colored shorts. My favorite Bass Pro Shops shorts are still available in some great colors. The canyon rose and agate green would both be great with the black/white cardi.

Speaking of great Bass Pro Shops shorts, today I’m wearing the Easy River frayed hem shorts in antique wash. These are on clearance, so they are selling out fast.

And lastly, the two pairs of Burkenstock dupes that I love. I have had the Outwoods Bork-30 in vegan leather (Is this the gentrified name for “faux leather” that we are using now?) for two years. They have held up great, and I wear them EVERYDAY. They are my go-to when I come in from work and change clothes and shoes. I have them in pewter, but they have other really cute colors like silver, leopard, white, and snakeskin. They pewter are $27 and some change, but the prices differ slightly depending on the color.

However, in my haul, I scored the Time and Tru ones. They are available in cognac (which is what I got), black, floral, and rose gold. They are only $15, and they are more comfortable than the Outwoods ones. They have padding in the sole in three different places, and they are like walking on clouds. And unless you want the authentic Berks in the $75-$100 range, these “vegan leather” options are legit.

Happy weekend, guys!
