Coleslaw with Fruit

Marge Taggart


This recipe is delicious with the added fruit ingredients. I could never get my coleslaw recipes to taste like many good restaurants served until my husband introduced me to the Marzetti Original 15 oz. "Refrigerated" Slaw Dressing. (USE the posted VARIATION tip as well.) What a GO-TO side dish - so easy. Enjoy.

I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious this coleslaw was. It's cool and creamy with just the right amount of cabbage mixed with the sweet fruit. This isn't overly sweet but is on the sweet side thanks to the fruit. It is a cross between a savory cole slaw and a fruit salad. All the fruits blend together nicely. Walnuts add a bit of crunch but also a little salt that balances the sweet fruits. The Test Kitchen
