WHEN I was growing up, this was one of our favorite summer salads. I have fond memories of my barefooted sister and me going out to the garden after a cool summer rain to pick the cabbage from our patch.
You might think the ice cream is a strange ingredient, but it makes it extra creamy and adds just a touch of sweetness.

I RECEIVED this recipe from a friend a long time ago, and it's been a family favorite ever since.
The tartness of the slaw and the sweetness of the fruit give it a unique flavor. We like it best served with ham or pork chops. —Margaret Wampler
"WHEN I was a child, my mother often served this salad with multicolored marshmallows sprinkled on top, much to my delight. The marshmallows added a touch of sweetness that really complemented this salad's tangy flavor.
This salad goes well with all meats—it's especially good at barbecues—and fish. I recently served it at the Prayer Brunch of our local women's club.
After 55 years of marriage, I'm a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother doing the things I like to do...and cooking's on top of that list!
My mom used to make this coleslaw often when I was little. I think my three siblings and I must've requested it often, because each of use was allowed to eat six peanuts as a special treat while Mom was making it. I remember we'd all line up at the kitchen table to wait for her to count them out!
My mother picked up this recipe in Pennsylvania, and as long as I can remember, there was always a "bucket" of slaw in the refrigerator. Now I have an old stoneware butter crock in my refrigerator filled with the same!
