What to do with cabbages and blueberries

Mom says things are plodding along in the garden - we lost a few plants while she was sick cause she forgot to tell dad to water them - but overall most things survived. What we do have though is an over abundance of cabbages and blueberries  (we planted 2 blueberry bushes last year and they gone CRAZY) Now thank fully dad loves corn beef and cabbage and Mom mamkes awesome stuffed cabbage rolls but today we found something different to try - Blueberry Coleslaw! Now we know you are going to want the recipe so here it is.

1 head Savoy cabbage
1/2 onion
1 carrot, julienned
1 pint blueberries (about 2 cups)
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Kosher salt

Shred the cabbage and thinly slice the onion, preferably using a mandoline on its thinnest setting. Combine the cabbage, onion, carrot and blueberries in a large bowl.
Add the mayonnaise, vinegar, honey, cilantro and 1 tablespoon salt and toss to combine. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 4 hours.


  1. WOw, what an unusual combo, but I bet its delicious. No fresh blueberries here yet...we're still in strawberry season.

  2. Never heard of such a thing! Dad keeps asking mom to plant 2 blueberry bushes but he already planted a blackberry bush and mom thinks the future might look overgrown??

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. Glad most of the garden survived! That sounds so yummy, we may have to try that!

  4. That sounds good. I like coleslaw, I always add raisins and pecans.

  5. OMD that sounds soooooo delightful...
    NEVER heard of Blueberries in Coleslaw...
    BUTT Have had Mandarin Oranges in it and WOW is THAT good...
    butt we think the blueberries would be EVEN BETTER..


    Do you ever FRY cabbage and onions together? THAT is good in the WINTER...

  6. Dat is blueberry cool. Mom and Aunty D went to the NC Blueberry Festival yesterday and came home with like 87 zillion blueberries. She said dat she will have to try dis receipt. Perfect timing.

  7. Wow that one is new to us. Blueberries are not that common here and most are shipped in from Poland. We do love them so we should give that a go. Have a serene Sunday. Get some big easy in today.
