I am always looking for great side dishes. They are so essential for any great meal. This slaw serves up Autumn in a wonderful combination of cabbage, apples, cranberries and pecans with a creamy maple dressing. It is so fabulous! I always double the recipe because I love having some in fridge so I can grab a bowl whenever I want.

You can shred some cabbage or just buy it pre-shredded. I use this packet from Trader Joes. The rainbow mixture makes for a very pretty slaw.

Just toss a bag of this into a bowl and add in the apples.

Add in apples, cranberries, pecans and green onions.

Mix together the mayonnaise, yogurt, maple syrup, ginger and salt to make the dressing.

Pour over slaw and mix well.

This will last for several days covered and refrigerated. The flavor actually improves over time.
