2 scallions, green and white parts thinly sliced
1/3 cup dried cranberries

To prepare quesadilla, sprinkle 2 to 3 TB cheese over one half of tortilla. Place several apple slices, barely overlapping, on top of cheese. Then sprinkle 2 more Tbs. of cheese on top of apples and fold tortilla in half. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Heat butter in skillet over medium-high heat and cook quesadillas until the cheese melts and the tortillas are golden brown on both sides.

To prepare coleslaw, whisk mayonnaise, lemon juice, 2 Tbs. water, sugar and salt together in a small bowl. Combine shredded cabbage, carrot, scallions, cranberries and walnuts in a large bowl. Pour dressing over cabbage mixture and toss well to coat. Allow coleslaw to sit at least 15 minutes before serving, tossing occasionally.
