Peach Cole Slaw

This week I’m doing my recipe early due to Memorial Day. Traditionally summer starts with Memorial Day. Wishing you all a day of safe time with family with a few moments remembering those who served our country. Now let’s talk about cole slaw.

Peaches are one of my favorite fruits.  Peaches are available from April to October.  Since Florida is a hot state, you probably think we don’t grow peaches.  Peaches do grow here in mostly the north part of the state.  Our peaches are available April and May. By June our markets are selling Georgia peaches.  No matter the state where they are grown, I just love fresh ripe peaches. I love them as my snack or dessert and also like adding them to many dishes.

 

 

 

Peaches are so good for you too. I wrote about the health benefits when I first started blogging.  Peaches are loaded with Vitamin C and A.  They’re a great source of potassium, iron, and Vitamin K.  They have anti-inflammatory properties, and a medium peach only has about 50 calories!

 

 

 

 

Today’s recipe is coleslaw with peaches.  I’ve seen similar dishes in some restaurants and even Trader Joe sells it.  My recipe is similar to Trader Joe’s with a few modifications.  If you’d like your onions to have a pickled flavor, mix vinegar and sugar and marinate diced onions for at least 5 minutes.  I suggest you marinate overnight and drain vinegar and reserve for dressing. You can buy a cabbage and carrots to shred or for a fast dish use a 16 oz. bag of shredded cabbage and carrots. Add the goodies and you’re ready for a cookout.  Summer time means it’s time for a cold salad of cabbage, carrots, peaches and raisins!

  1. I love peaches Carol. In fact I had peach jam with my breakfast. You will notice that if you check my blog this morning your name is now in the picture. Have a great day.

    1. thanks for changing the photo Paul, I do appreciate that. I am a huge peach fan myself. Hope you have a wonderful week.

  2. Oh sounds good. I loved reading this and learning the health benefits! I am adding Peaches to our diet. I noticed you came by and read my book review the other day. Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment. And for being active in the our Homaking Journeys Facebook group!
    Enjoy your Memorial Day!

    I love peaches and I like coleslaw…but never thought of putting them together. Unique flavor choices. But cool and refreshing for summer. Thanks for sharing at #aclwcc.

  4. I put apples and sometimes raisins in my cabbage salad, but never thought of peaches or pickled onions. It sounds good. Of course up here in Oregon we won’t have yummy fresh peaches until late summer. Sigh!

  5. Peaches are still about a month or so away from where I live, but I love them! Every year, I get excited for the first fresh peaches. I didn’t realize they only have 50 calories!!!

    This recipe looks excellent!!! I am bookmarking this page and will definitely make it during peach season.

    I’ve never heard of peach cole slaw before. It sounds and looks amazing.

    Today I remember all those that gave their all for our freedom.

    Have a great Memorial Day, Carol. ♥

    That is an odd combo but I’m sure it is delicious. Right now we are trying to keep ahead of the mangos as they ripen. We have distributed over 100 pounds to neighbors.

    1. Wow! you have prolific mango trees. Wish I was closer. I’d be making mango smoothies, frozen mango pops, mango salads, etc!

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
