Cranberry Apple Waldorf Slaw Salad

Cranberry Apple Waldorf Slaw Salad

2 apples, thinly sliced
2 cups bagged coleslaw mix
2 stalks of peeled and chopped celery (opt)
1⁄2 medium onion, thinly sliced (I omit)
1⁄4 cup dried cranberries
1⁄4 cup walnuts, toasted (I would rather use Almonds or Pecans)
1 sm pkg sunflower Seeds4 tablespoons lemon juice, separated, about 1/2 a lemon
1⁄2 cup sour cream
1⁄4 cup mayonnaise or 1⁄4 cup Miracle Whip  (I prefer Mayo)
2 -3 tablespoons sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 pinch pepper

Thinly slice the apples into a small bowl.  (I use diced apples)
Stir in two tablespoons of lemon juice onto the apple.  (I haven't used the lemon juice as I cut the apples and stir them into the mayo so quickly they don't get brown.)
In a large bowl, combine the coleslaw, onion, celery, cranberries,sunflower seeds and walnuts.
Stir in the apples.
In another small bowl, combine sour cream, mayo, sugar, salt, pepper, and remaining lemon juice.
Poor the wet ingredients onto the coleslaw mix and combine.
Serve chilled.
This one can be made ahead and is really great when it has several hours to allow flavors to blend.
