I was looking for a side dish to go with the chicken that I planned to make tonight, and I saw a slaw mix that had broccoli, cauliflower, red cabbage and carrots in it. I figured there might be a recipe on the back, and sure enough, I found this. You just add apple and walnuts and a dressing to it and you get a nice Waldorf salad without much effort. It was a pretty big hit at the dinner table. I love all of the crunchy veggies, and the sweet/tart apple is a great addition.
