The calendar says it’s Spring, even though I look out my window and I see 9+ inches of snow on the ground and still coming down. I’ve been craving fruit lately. Armed with a jar of Marzetti’s Light Original Slaw Dressing in my refrigerator, I thought I’d make a Fruit and Nut Slaw. At least my mouth would think it’s spring or summer!
During the summer it seems we are always heading to a potluck or bar-b-cue. I like to bring either a side dish or dessert to these parties. This fruity slaw veers from the standard classic coleslaw with its combination of fruit, pecans, blue cheese and slaw mix tossed in a light slaw dressing. The assembled side dish needs time for the flavors to meld into a cool and refreshing side dish that’s perfect for a spring lunch or hot summer picnic. And really goes along with anything!
Filled with strawberries, grapes and mandarin oranges dressed in Marzetti’s Light Slaw Dressing this fruit slaw is a great, healthy and light substitution from your usual slaw drowning in mayonnaise. The sweet flavors of the fruit are perfect with any spring or summer meal. From BBQ ribs to pulled pork sandwiches, to steaks, grilled chicken or even Tilapia. The crunchy cabbage and pecans give great texture while the blue cheese gives it a sharp salty flavor that pairs deliciously with the fruit and creamy dressing.
If you are searching for something easy to make, delicious, beautiful and unique that is sure to impress your guests this Fruit and Nut Slaw this is the perfect side dish to serve. Definitely suitable for any spring brunch, simple gathering, or make it the star of the show for a light lunch like I did!
