Unusual Coleslaw — Orange & Cheddar Slaw

It’s not so unusual to add fruit to coleslaw. Waldorf Slaw (with apples and nuts) was a popular side at the Kirby House restaurant so when Barry added oranges (he actually used Cuties or Halos) to our usual coleslaw, I didn’t give it a second thought. As a matter of fact, it was a delicious combination but on further examination, I discovered he had also added finely grated Cheddar cheese. Now that I would never have thought of . . . but it is a winning, if unusual, flavor addition!
