When you have fresh berries and citrus on hand, a fresh fruit slaw is an excellent choice. This is a twist on the typical coleslaw, and it’s pretty and tasty.
Coleslaw is an great pick for a potluck or picnic, since it’s made with cabbage. It won’t wilt or get soggy the way lettuce does, so you can pack it in a cooler ahead of time or leave it sitting out on a buffet table.
The combination of fruit in the ingredient list is delicious, but feel free to make substitutions depending upon what’s in season. Strawberries can be a good substitution, since they are in season most of the year.
The fresh ingredients make this an ideal choice for those of us who are vegan, vegetarian or gluten free. The simple recipe is free from common allergens, and it tastes wonderful!
