Have you ever had coleslaw with fruit in it? The UK Cooperative Extension Office has a recipe in its 2024 Food & Nutrition Recipe Calendar that gives coleslaw a fruity remix. The recipe was adapted from an idea from the Iowa State University Extension. It may sound a little different, but it's refreshing, delicious and relatively inexpensive to make. Here's how you do it.


2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (or any type of vinegar)

2 teaspoons sugar

3 tablespoons crushed pineapple canned in 100% juice, including juice

2 cups shredded or finely chopped cabbage

1/2 cup chopped apples (or fruit of choice: orange, mandarin oranges, pear)

1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries


  1. Wash fresh produce under cool running water, using a vegetable brush to scrub veggies with a firm surface. Dry and cut to prepare for this recipe.
  2. Combine mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and pineapple in a small bowl. Stir to mix well.
  3. In another bowl, combine cabbage and other fruit.
  4. Pour dressing over cabbage and fruit. Stir to mix.
  5. Serve right away.
  6. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
