Apple Pear and Cranberry Coleslaw

I made a big batch of our very favorite, slow cooker barbecue pulled pork last weekend.  For side dishes, I did my skillet baked beans and whipped up a batch of our new favorite coleslaw, this Apple Pear and Cranberry Coleslaw recipe.  

I absolutely love the flavor combination in this coleslaw!  The addition of apples, pears, and Craisins puts a fantastically yummy twist on a traditional coleslaw recipe.

The kids really went for it, I think they loved the sweet crunchy-ness that the apples, pears, and craisins gave to the coleslaw.  

I used pre-cut, bagged cabbage and carrots, so the recipe was a breeze to put together.

Recipe Tips:

Not sure you need 3 tablespoons of sugar, start with half the amount and taste.
Prepare ahead of time by putting the salad together, minus the apples and pears, up to a day in advance.  

Store diced apples and pears in a covered container filled with 2 cups water and 3 Tbsp. lemon juice. When ready to serve, drain apples, and stir into slaw.
