Ramen Noodle Cranberry Coleslaw

The deep red of the cranberries and red cabbage makes this a perfect fit for a Christmas spread. Adults and children love this dish, and I’m often asked to bring it to potlucks and other big dinners. Refrigerate any leftovers—it’ll still taste great for a day or two, if you can keep people out of it that long! —Cornelia Cree, Waynesville, North Carolina
