Orange Broccoli Slaw With Apples & Oranges

Broccoli slaw is a salad that is a variation of traditional coleslaw, prepared using shredded raw broccoli stalks substituted for cabbage. It may also contain mayonnaise, purple cabbage, carrots, vinegar or lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper. It is commonly served at potlucks or “covered dish” parties.

This time of year many of us buy sweet little fruits in the citrus family.  Mandarins are a type of orange and include tangerines, Cleos, Cuties, Pixies, Clementines, and Satsumas. They are generally smaller and sweeter than oranges, a little flatter in shape, and they have a thinner, looser skin that makes them easier to peel. I wanted to use Mandarins in an easy salad bursting with flavor.  I’m using fresh tangerines but you could use any type of Mandarin orange.  In the summer, buy canned Mandarin sections to use. It’s like adding sparkling sunshine to your salad.

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.
