Sweet & Tangy Slaw

I was never the biggest fan of coleslaw until I got hooked on watching Rachel Ray and some of her variations on slaw were so good, so good in fact that I had to try my hand at this simple, sweet side dish - a must have for any BBQ!

1 medium head green cabbage
1 small head red cabbage (or white - whichever you prefer)
1 C. dried sweetened cranberries
1 C. shredded carrot
1 can mandarin oranges, drained, (optional)
zest of 1 lemon
1 1/2 C. raspberry vinagrette

Thin slice the cabbage, into bite-sized strips. Toss in carrot, oranges, and cranberries. Stir lemon zest into raspberry vinagrette, drizzle over veggies. Chill for 2 hours before serving.

The great news: you don't have to worry if this is left out in the sun - no dairy to spoil in this recipe and vegetarians and vegans will love it
