Coleslaw with Blueberries in serving bowl

When I saw this recipe I thought it was interesting with the blueberries – but was a bit skeptical on how it would taste. I was pleasantly surprised on how the blueberries added a nice sweetness and a different texture than a traditional coleslaw. You can determine how much miracle whip or mayonnaise to add depending if you want it creamy or a bit drier. It was quick to make since I used a pre-packaged bag of cole slaw with sliced carrots. A great way to put together a side dish for a picnic that doesn’t take a lot of work. The blueberries stored well mixed with the salad for several days. Plus I added some sherry (not cooking sherry) for fun! This recipe was adapted from Food TV.

      It definitely is interesting – but it was good! Of course I adore blueberries!! I need to find more recipes.

        I’ve taken to eating them on my oatmeal. I just sprinkle some over. I also take plain bagel, spread with some low fat cream cheese, top with blueberries, and toast until the blueberries burst apart. Simple and good. They can also be used in the peach cobbler I just posted, either w/ the peaches or by themselves.

        I love blueberries! They are great on oatmeal – makes it easier to eat. I also like them on my pancakes and just plain. Oh yeah… and in my yogurt. The list really is endless. 🙂

      3. kanzensakura says:

        and bestest of all, I like to put them in a bowl and pop them in my mouth like popcorn!

    Interesting combinations I would never have thought of. I like the idea of adding cilantro. Still not sure about the blueberries though 😉

    1. Bernice says:

      Luckily for the blueberries you could just add a couple to your plate to see if you like them or not. 🙂

    Cabbage and blueberries, really? I’ve try savoury salad-cabbage and cranberry..

    1. Bernice says:

      It sounds odd – doesn’t it? But it was good. I will have to try the cranberries next time. Thanks for the tip! 🙂

      1. milkandbun says:

        You’re welcome! 🙂

    1. Bernice says:

      ha ha ha… that is what I thought first! But you could always just add a couple to your plate and see if you like them or not. 🙂

  6. Sheryl says:

    I like cole slaw–I’ll have to try adding some blueberries the next time that I make it.

    1. Bernice says:

      Try adding a few blueberries when you are serving it to see if you like them. I thought it would be too odd… but being a food blogger I thought I would give it a chance! 🙂

  7. Sophie33 says:

    Yum Yum Yum Yummm! I would add a bit more sherry to it! 😉

    1. Bernice says:

      I think I did add a bit more sherry, ha ha ha 🙂
