Fruit Slaw in a Cabbage Bowl

 Fruit Slaw in a Cabbage Bowl
This fresh recipe from Darlene Markel turns ho-hum coleslaw on its head—in more ways than one! I take the traditional blend of vegetables for that dish and mix in juicy fruit pieces," begins the Stayton, Oregon cook. "Then I serve the salad inside a hollowed-out cabbage. Both the flavor and "bowl" never fail to draw compliments.
