I absolutely despise mayonnaise, so I have never had the traditional Cole slaw, This morning while trying to think of a alternative side dish for dinner (something besides potatoes, noodles etc. I thought I would try and make up a fruit salad. I came up with this and it tastes pretty darn good, It has the "crunch" of cabbage" which I do like.For The dressing I just kept throwing stuff in the bowl and tasting. :-)

How to Make Faux Slaw

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel apples and the pear and shred using hand held shredder, place in bowl add 1 cup diced pineapple and 1/2 cup red grapes
  2. For dressing: in lg mixing bowl, add softened cream cheese, Marshmallow fluff, vanilla extract, almond extract and the cinnamon Beat until well blended
  3. slowly add the heavy cream, ( you may not need the entire 1/4 cup) beat for approx 2 minutes.
  4. Pour over fruit and mix well refrigerate until ready to be served
  5. After shredding my apples and pear, I placed them in a bowl and poured a small can of ginger ale over them and set in the refrigerator until I was ready to mix with the dressing, before mixing I drained and pressed out the extra liquid, This helps to keep the fruit from turning brown. I made this early and covered tightly with saran wrap. It did not discolor at all. I also used fresh pineapple, I'm sure canned would work as long as it was drained well, you can add mandarin oranges for color if wanted
