Tropical Fruit & Pistachio Ginger Slaw June 1, 2011

Tropical Fruit & Pistachio Ginger Slaw

Jamie says:  Yesterday was quite an eventful day.  After internship, class, the gym, and making dinner, I submitted my first job application and signed-up for the Florida Dietetic Association Symposium!

Tropical Fruit & Pistachio Ginger Slaw


  • 1/2 head purple cabbage
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1 Tbsp dried papaya
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 Tbsp dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup pistachios (with shell)
  • 1/3 cup Bolthouse Farms Asian ginger extra virgin olive oil vinaigrette


  1. Thinly slice cabbage.  Chop cucumber.  Cut papaya into small pea-sized pieces.  Add to a large bowl along with raisins and cranberries.  Shell pistachios and add shelled nuts to bowl.  Pour dressing over slaw.  Toss to mix.  Serves: 4.  Enjoy!

Sweet, crunchy, and refreshing. I was so pleasantly surprised that the cabbage lost its bitter taste after the dressing and toppings were added.

  • Nutrition note: Pistachios are not only vibrant in color, they also shine as a good source of many vitamins, minerals, and monounsaturated fats, which are the heart-healthy fats.  Aim to replace your saturated fat intake (i.e. butter, cheese) with healthier fats such as monounsaturated fats (i.e. nuts) and omega-3s (i.e. salmon, sardines, flax seeds)

  1. […] Wow!  It’s almost like dessert!  The sweet honey takes the spotlight and the salt amps up the flavor even more. Kathryn used to think cabbage was gross but now thinks it’s amazing after eating my Sweet and Salty Cabbage and Tropical Fruit & Pistachio Ginger Slaw. […]
