    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.

    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!

    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!

    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 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!

    Thought this was pretty good. Also used mandarin oranges for convenience. Not super flavorful, but light and refreshing. Good departure from traditional slaw.

    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.
