From Kraft magazine...what a creative way to blend coleslaw mix with fruit and a zippy Italian dressing. I was completely surprised by this dish.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups Coleslaw, and carrot salad blend
  • 2 cups sugar snap peas
  • 2 red peppers, cut into large chunks (about 2 cups)
  • 12 cup green onion, slices (I used a Vidalia onion instead)
  • 14 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 (15 1/4 ounce) can tropical fruit salad, drained
  • 12 cup zesty Italian dressing (I used low-fat)


  1. Combine all ingredients except the dressing in a large bowl.
  2. Add dressing and toss to coat.
  3. Serve immediately.

Interesting slaw, but in a good way. I wasn't able to find the tropical fruit cocktail at our local store, so used the regular, omitted the cherries and the nuts. Made for Photo Tag game. :)

Delicious salad which we enjoyed with grilled chicken (Chicken Thighs With Lime and Honey (Oamc)). The changes I made was using slightly different amount of the ingredients listed -- but I think this recipe is very adaptable to different additions/canned fruit. Thanks for sharing!
