Crunchy Asian chopped salad with tangy dried cranberries, sliced almonds, cilantro, and the best 2-minute homemade sesame dressing!
1 bag tricolor cole slaw (without dressing)
1/2 red onion, sliced or chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup Diamond of California Sliced Almonds
1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce (I used low sodium)
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Add cole slaw, onions, cranberries, almonds, and cilantro to a large bowl.
Prepare the dressing by combining all dressing ingredients in a jar (or similar container), cover and shake well. Toss salad with dressing and serve immediately OR if preparing ahead, cover salad with plastic wrap and store dressing and salad in fridge, then toss immediately before serving.
