With dried cranberries, toasted walnuts and a bright-tasting citrus vinaigrette, this carrot slaw is delightfully crunchy and sweet. It's perfect for a light lunch or as a healthy side to sandwiches or burgers.
To toast the walnuts, bake them on a sheet pan in a 350°F oven for about 10 minutes until fragrant.
