Tropical Coleslaw

Michael and Bradley were helping Dana construct frames for her canvas. Dana joined us for dinner. As a side to the pork steaks and fresh corn on the cob, Joan served this updated deli staple. This is definitely not grandma's coleslaw.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Start to Finish: 30 minutes
14 Servings (1/2 cup each)

1 bay (16 0z.) coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)

1 can (11 oz) mandarin orange segments, drained

2 medium green onions, chopped (2 tablespoons), if desired

1 container (6 oz) Yoplait Original 99% Fat Free Key lime pie yogurt

1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

1 teaspoon grated lime peel

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1/4 cup whole cashews

1 In large bowl, mix coleslaw mix, mandarin oranges and onions.
