A delicious coleslaw with a little citrus twist! Adapted from Cooks Recipes. If you like your slaw a little wetter, make another 1/2 recipe of the dressing. Enjoy! This is southwestern also made in Spain, they like to use citrus.
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 cups shredded green cabbage (you may add in some red if you like)
- 1 cup shredded carrot
- 1⁄2 green bell peppers or 1⁄2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons golden raisins
- In a medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, orange juice concentrate, sugar, salt and black pepper.
- Stir in the shredded cabbage, carrot, green bell pepper, and golden raisins.
- Mix to coat, cover and keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
I can't believe I never reviewed this! I've been making this for over a year now. We love it. I do sub mandarin oranges in place of the raisins though out of personal preference. Thanks for sharing this yummy twist on a traditional recipe.
Easy to make and different for a change from more traditional slaws. I really enjoyed it, but I think when I make it again, I'll take a tip from some of the other reviwers and add some pineapple or mandarin oranges. And maybe a bit of lime or lemon juice for a little more of a tangy taste.
What a great little salad, perfect for my diet with a few substitutions. I used low fat mayo, Equal, and eliminated the raisins, and found the amount of dressing adequate. I particularly liked that the dressing called for frozen orange juice concentrate, something I always have on hand, and I don't always have fresh oranges. I plan to make this salad often, and will probably use the tasty dressing on other greens also.
