You can combine and refrigerate the dressing up to a day ahead.
1/2 cup orange sections
1 cup halved seedless red grapes
1 (16-ounce) package cabbage-and-carrot coleslaw
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon minced fresh onion
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
4 teaspoons canola oil
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
How to Make It
To prepare coleslaw, chop orange sections. Combine the oranges, grapes, and coleslaw in a large bowl.
To prepare dressing, combine 1/4 cup sugar and the remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk until sugar dissolves. Add the dressing mixture to cabbage mixture, and toss well. Cover and chill for 30 minutes before serving.
I loved this cole slaw, though I might cut back a bit on the sugar next time and add a chopped scallion. Used green grapes as that's what was in the fridge. Served with the Island Beef--which is kind of like a pulled pork--corn on the cob, and biscuits for a good summer dinner.
I love love this salad! I only made a couple of changes: I used a can of mandarin oranges for the simplicity and added chopped fresh broccoli to make it nutritionally well-rounded. It has a great crunch and is perfect for the summer!
Great for traveling--prepare the dressing and fruit ahead, and combine with the slaw mix on site.
I usually use mandarin oranges, but also have used sliced red grapes or fresh pineapple chunks. Sometimes omit the onions. All bring compliments.
I made this last night. I do not like cole slaws made with mayonnaise, but I know cabbage is good for me, so I'm always looking for non-mayo recipes. I used a real cabbage and carrots (not prepackaged), so I didn't really measure. I used about half of a big cabbage, and 3 carrots, shredded. I eye-balled the amount of grapes and oranges. I doubled the dressing recipe, but cut the sugar in half.
Yummy! This coleslaw is a wonderful change of pace. I don't care for slaws that are mayo based so this was right up my ally, and the fruit adds a nice sweet pop along with some extra fiber and vitamins!
I really liked this recipe. Being a fruit slaw, I was expecting something sweeter than a regular coleslaw, and was a nice break from the usual veggie-heavy slaws. I used honey instead of white sugar, which probably help cut the sweet factor a little bit. Very tasty!
