Fruit Cole Slaw
Gluten Free Living – 2019
Fruit Cole Slaw is absolutely delightful. This is one of the most delicious takes on Cole Slaw I’ve ever eaten. This one uses the traditional Cole Slaw mix. It also includes blueberries, bananas, strawberries and a reduced-sugar can of fruit cocktail. The salad dressing uses Greek yogurt and other healthy ingredients. This is a healthy and delicious recipe for cole slaw that can’t be beat.
I happen to love Cole Slaw recipes. I’ve got a Hawaiian version with pineapple. I’ve got one made with apple, cranberries and almonds. I’ve also got a KFC copycat recipe that’s terrific. These recipes with fruit are extra special. They really liven up a traditional or classic style cole slaw. This Fruit Cole Slaw is no exception. I really like the fact that the salad dressing is made with Greek yogurt rather than mayonnaise. It’s got just enough bite to keep it interesting without overwhelming the salad ingredients.
I served Fruit Cole Slaw back in March to our Friday night care group. I made it as a side dish for a new Beef Noodle Vegetable Casserole and some Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits. That was one delicious meal. I got wonderful reviews about this salad. Several people wanted to take home leftovers. 🙂
This is a fantastic side salad for the upcoming summer holidays like Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day, Fourth of July or Labor Day. It’s great for potlucks. It’s so unusual you won’t have to worry about having multiple versions of it. It’s not fun going to potlucks and finding five pans of baked beans or 20 versions of potato salad. 🙁 I always want to bring something different. This recipe fits the bill.
If you need a revved up version of Cole Slaw, this is it. It is one recipe you’ll find yourself coming back to over and over again.
