Fruity Coleslaw

Hello!  I have a delicious recipe for Coleslaw.  It is so good that  I have been asked for the recipe three times in the last few days!   So I thought I would just write the recipe here, and the next time someone asks me, I can send them to my blog😊

This  really is a divine coleslaw recipe.  I get asked for the recipe every time I make it.    I invented it many years ago and really have never had any other Coleslaw that even comes close in goodness.   I love it on sandwiches in place of lettuce, but I really like it with fried chicken as well.

We had smoked brisket sandwiches this week on toasted buns with this Fruity Coleslaw and spicy sweet pickles.  Talk about YUM!!

Recipe by Tracy @It’s a T-Sweets Day! 


  • 1 head of shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced chopped celery
  • 1c grated carrots
  • 1 or 2 finely chopped green onions 

Optional additions:

  • 1 orange, peeled sectioned and cut in large chunks
  • 1c grapes, cut in quarters or halves
  • 1 Apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/2c slivered almonds

Combine all of the salad ingredients with as many of the add-ins that you would like.  I like to add all of them if I have them on hand.


  • 1c real mayonnaise, not light mayonnaise 
  • 1/4c fruit juice – orange or apple
  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 1tsp each Salt and pepper

Combine all of the dressing ingredients. Add more mayo or  juice until your desired thickness and flavor is achieved. Add salt and pepper.  

Add dressing to Coleslaw and mix together.  Add more salt and pepper if needed.  

There you go.  Yum yum yum!  The next time you are in the mood for a crunchy, creamy,  SWEET Coleslaw, I hope you will give this recipe a try.   Your friends and family will all be thanking you, and asking for the recipe!

      1. I always have a need/desire for a good slaw recipe…….almost liking it better on a sandwich than as a ‘side’!!! Adding fruit and (toasted) almonds is something I always do (craisins, usually).

      1. Yes, I’ve been using “real” ingredients in my cooking and, as you say, just eating smaller portions. There are too many chemicals added to those light versions anyway.
