Broccoli Slaw II

Adapted from: Everybody Likes Sandwiches

This recipe is similar to the other broccoli slaw recipe I posted here in the past, but it uses Greek yogurt in place of some of the mayo, and has little bit of heat from hot sauce.

1 large head of broccoli, or one bag of broccoli slaw
1/4 red onion, diced
1/4 c roasted almonds or peanuts, coarsely chopped
1/4 c dried cranberries (soak in hot water first for a few minutes to plump, drain)
2 T Greek yogurt
2 T mayo
juice of 1/2 lemon, or more to taste (I used sour cherry vinegar)
couple of dashes of hot sauce (I used sriracha)
a small squirt of honey
salt & pepper to taste

Use a large knife to thinly chop up the broccoli into a rough slaw. Dump into a medium sized bowl along with the red onion, almonds* , and cranberries. Put the remaining ingredients into a small bowl and whisk together. Taste & adjust seasoning if necessary. Pour onto broccoli slaw and toss until everything is coated.

* Note: I think that broccoli slaw tastes best after it has been able to sit in the fridge for awhile so the flavors meld. However, the nuts may get a little soft during that process; you might want to consider holding the nuts out until you're ready to serve it.
