Cranberry Almond Coleslaw

We had a get together for a friend who was retiring.  Everyone brought a salad and each salad was so tasty.  I had wished I could have gotten all the recipes, but I did get one recipe for a delicious coleslaw.  It's a Paula Deen recipe so you know it's got to be good.  It's called Rene's Coleslaw. 

I brought it to a cookout at a friend's house.  Everyone loved it and you will too.

Cranberry Almond Coleslaw

5 cups shredded cabbage (I used a 1 pound bag)
1/2 cups almonds, toasted ( I used sliced almonds.  My friend used whole almonds.)
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup chopped green onions, white and green parts
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon sweet pickle relish
1 Tablespoon honey mustard
1 Tablespoon honey
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine cabbage, almonds, cranberries, celery, green onions, and green pepper in a large plastic bowl with a snap-on lid.  Combine all dressing ingredients, adding salt and pepper to taste, and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Pour dressing over the slaw just before serving.  Stir well. 

**I mixed the dressing  with the cabbage mixture and then let it sit in fridge until ready to serve.  It was so good.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
