We added fresh pears, cranberries and nuts to traditional coleslaw for a wonderful make ahead salad!
- 2 Concorde pears (chopped with peel on)
- 1 Cup light mayonnaise
- 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
- ¼ Cup buttermilk
- ¼ Cup sugar
- 1 large head green cabbage (finely chopped)
- 1 large carrot (grated)
- ½ cup chopped nuts (toasted walnuts or toasted pecans are good to use)
In small bowl mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, sugar and buttermilk with wire whisk until well blended. Set aside.
In large salad bowl combine pears, chopped cabbage, carrots and nuts. Add dressing and mix to combine. Cover and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve. This slaw will keep in the refrigerator for days!
