Fruity Coleslaw ~ a healthy recipe from Our Fairfield Home & Garden
Do you love coleslaw but not all the calories that come with it? Here’s a little recipe I made up as a healthy alternative, FRUITY COLESLAW!
Every time I serve this coleslaw to guests or my family, it disappears. This is one of my most requested recipes, so I’ll let you in on it now, too. Quick and easy to make!
1 bag of shredded cabbage & carrots (1 lb)
1/4 cup each of rice vinegar and mayonnaise (more of each if you like a wetter slaw)
organic blue agave sweetener
1 large diced apple
a handful of golden raisins
Mix the mayonnaise & rice vinegar together with a whisk in a large bowl
Add liquid agave to taste & whisk again
Toss the cabbage & carrot mix in this dressing
Add the diced apple & golden raisins and toss some more
*I let mine sit in the fridge for an hour or so. That way the raisins plump up a little. Toss again before serving and add salt & pepper if desired.
Makes enough for 6 to 8 servings.
So here it is! Light and fruity, the rice vinegar gives it a little something special. A perfect coleslaw with a winter pot roast or at a summer barbecue. Try this recipe and let me know what your friends and family have to say!
Go ahead, pin it for later! This recipe is a real keeper!
It’s so yum.
Thanks, Lorraine! It is yummy and a little different than the ordinary coleslaw, too!
Can’t wait to try, looks good. I may try red apple for a little more color. Thanks.
That’s a great idea, Linda! Enjoy!
