This salad is great with turkey burgers, rotisserie chicken, and other turkey, chicken, and pork dishes.
1. In a small bowl, soak the cranberries in the pomegranate juice until plumped, 30 minutes; drain, reserving the juice.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cranberries, cabbage, carrot, and onion. Mix in the parsley and walnuts.
3. Add the vinegar, salt, and pepper to the reserved juice. Whisk in the oil, then pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss with a fork until well combined. Let the slaw sit for 30 minutes, toss, and serve. This salad keeps, covered in the refrigerator, for 4 days.
Cook Smart: If you do not have pomegranate juice, soak the cranberries in 1/3 cup apple juice. For the dressing, use 2 tablespoons of the berry-flavored apple juice with 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar and the balsamic vinegar.
