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.

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

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!
