If you’re in need of a festive side for your holiday table, look no further than this Winter Berry Slaw. Full of color and sweet fruit, it’s a beautiful center piece or side for any seasonal menu.

When I think of coleslaw, nothing pretty comes to mind. I know that I don’t want any soggy green mush at my table or on my pallet. So, I strived to create something as tasty on the eyes as it is on the taste buds.

This Winter Berry Slaw has both red and green cabbage, carrots, radishes, cilantro, dill, pomegranates, blueberries, sunflower seeds and walnuts all tossed together with Garlic Expressions dressing and mixed with the remaining pomegranate juice. The saltiness of the nuts and the sweetness of the berries are perfectly balanced by the crunch of the cabbage and radish.

Winter Berry Slaw Ingredients

Using green and red cabbage gives the slaw natural color and Heinen’s makes it easy with their pre-shredded cabbages. It saves so much time this way! I also picked up one large container of POMS pomegranate arils to avoid the mess of shelling a whole fruit. It’s these small skips in the process that make this recipe so simple, but you can very well shred and slice the cabbage yourself if you wish.

The bright pops of cilantro and dill and the nuttiness of the walnuts and sunflower seeds add a depth of flavor. This recipe will surely make your holidays bright and bursting with flavor!

Well hello there, I’m Lauren and I love food! Keeping meals simple, satisfying and accessible to all is the main purpose behind my cooking, but I always add a touch of creativity and uniqueness.I’m a family-taught cook and food is one of my greatest passion in life, but I suppose there is a little more to me than just food. I am a fur-mama to two wonderful rescue pups, Herbie and Nelly and our cat Grayson, who are all part of The Bite Size Pantry household. They love to be with me in the kitchen and they make the cleanup process a whole lot easier. Thanks to the wonderful internet world I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking. Sometimes it seems like a lot, but I just love food and I really love sharing that love with others who love it too.
