This Fall inspired quick slaw is a perfect accompaniment for Thanksgiving or Christmas feasts. You can substitute the almonds for walnuts or pecans and experiment with raisins (instead of, or in addition to the cranberries). The flavours come out best after a few hours so aim to make ahead if serving for dinner.

Prep time: 15 minutes
