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!

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
