Poppy Seed Fruited Slaw

This is from "Cooking Light" and the most used recipe out of all the issues we have. Even if you are not a coleslaw fan (I'm sure not), you have to try this. It's awesome! We've substituted oranges with granny smith apples too and that is really good. I've also used mandarin oranges if you don't have time to supreme orange sections :)

1/2 c. orange sections
1 c. halved seedless red grapes
1 16 oz. package cabbage and carrot coleslaw

1/4 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. minced fresh onion
3 Tbsps. cider vinegar
1 tsp. poppy seeds
4 tsps. canola oil
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. salt

To prepare coleslaw, chop orange sections. Combine the oranges, grapes, and coleslaw in a large bowl. To prepare dressing, combine sugar and the remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk until sugar dissolves (when you add the oil, drizzle it in slowly while whisking). Add the dressing mixture to cabbage mixture, and toss well. Cover and chill for 30 minutes before serving for flavors to combine. Makes 6 cups. (Serving size 1 cup, calories per serving: 114).
