A refreshing summer slaw that blends the flavor of peaches, savoy cabbage, red bell peppers, and pecans. I first enjoyed this slaw at a garden party in Charleston several years ago and have served it each summer since to the delight of family and friends.

What a knock out dish. Something totally different that was perfect at the last BBQ I attended. I've even made this without the cabbage (cut the celery seeds in half if you do. Thanks for the recipe!! Read More

Liked the slaw portion of this salad but didn't care for the dressing. The peaches are a great addition to the slaw. I thought the taste of the honey overpowered all the other ingredients in the dressing. I served the toasted pecans separately so those that don't care for them could leave them off. I'm going to try making this again and use less honey in the dressing. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

If you are looking for something different this is the salad for you. I thought it was quite good and a number of my guests asked me for the recipe. Read More

This was very tasty and definitely different from our normal coleslaw! I used regular cabbage( approx 2c) onion and peppers( chopped) and 1 peach. IN the blender I used a little less than a full 1/4 c. of honey and lemon juice and a full 1/4 c. of olive oil and 1/2 of peach. Mixed all of that in blender with mint and it was nice. Added some dashes of salt and pepper and a couple of dashes of chipotle pepper( it needed a bit of something for a little spice) chilled for a little bit before eating and we really enjoyed it with our dinner! Definitely will make again! Read More

Made this for a family BBQ. Did not have savoy cabbage so used ordinary cabbage and also did not have pecans. Every one just loved it and asked for the recipe. Will definitely make again. Read More

Total bomb with my guests - they didn't like the combination of ingredients. I actually thought it was pretty good but you definitely have to make just enough to eat and serve it fresh or it gets soggy. Read More

I used regular cabbage not the savoy. Although the yellow and red peppers would have made this colorful I just used a green pepper. I did without the onions and celery seed. The salad dressing was what really made this! Next time I can't wait to try this using the pecans and mint as called for. Today I put cashews on as garnish. Read More
