Triple Fruit Coleslaw

A sweet & sour version of coleslaw that has been a big hit with my family & friends. I found this recipe in my local newspaper and adjusted it a bit to meet our needs. Prepared recipe makes about 12 servings. **Update 2/10** Once I read the review I realized I should have stated that due to the fruits within this coleslaw - it truly does not store well after 2 days. Adjust servings as needed to meet your needs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain pineapple, reserving the juice in a bowl.
  2. Cut the apple into small cubes.
  3. Combine the coleslaw mix, pineapple tidbits, cubed apple, chopped celery and dried cranberries in a large bowl - mixing well.
  4. In a small bowl or 2 cup measure, blend together the mayonnaise, vinegar and the 3 tablespoons of reserved pineapple juice.
  5. Pour mayonnaise mixture over the coleslaw mixture and toss gently to mix it well.
  6. Cover and chill for 2-4 hours.
  7. Before serving, toss the coleslaw gently.

This was not only delicious but all the color combination's made it looked great as well! This would be a great dish to take to a pot luck. I didn't add the dried cranberries (I didn't have any), but I added a sweet red apple. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Next time, I will try it with the cranberries. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

I made 2 changes. First I did not add the celery (personal preference) and I thought the dressing was just a tad too sour, so I added 1T of sugar. What a great hit this was with my family Easter dinner. Delicious.

I used a Gala apple, 1/2 cup of dried cranberries. This was great even if we didn't wait the 2-4 hours. I'm sure it's even better now. Thanks Melissa for this creamy coleslaw. Made for Zaar Star game
