Fruit and Sour Cream Coleslaw

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by lazyme

This is a little different than the usual coleslaw, but very good and easy to prepare. Prepare ingredients ahead of time, then put the salad together whenever you wish. For a more traditional coleslaw you can omit the grapes and pineapple and add 2 teaspoons of celery seed. From Jo Ann Merrill.

I made this for a church picnic event and it was very well received. DH and I really liked it too. I used half red-half green cabbage, and only had red grapes at my grocery store, so used 1 cup of those. Followed the recipe as written, and had to add a little extra sugar (2 tsp). Nice flavor combo with the fruits and cabbage - definitely different from most slaws, which is okay with me, as I'm NOT a huge fan of traditional coleslaw. Flavors melded together very nicely after several hours, but the red cabbage 'ran' and I had a light purple slaw which was very yummy! Thanks lazyme, for another great recipe...Made for lazyme's Football Pool 2008, Week #7 win.
