We’ve all love the traditional coleslaw but have you ever tried adding strawberries and kale to the mix? This Strawberry Kale Coleslaw has the perfect summery twist. It’s crunchy, it’s creamy, it’s refreshing and it’s something new and exciting to rotate with the classic coleslaw salad!
The Perfect Summer Coleslaw
Coleslaw is one of my favorite kinds of salad. I don’t know what it is, must be the simplicity and that creamy dressing but coleslaw is a regular at my house so I often find myself experimenting with different variations.
Before strawberry season is headed out the door I thought I’d throw them into this coleslaw along with some kale and it’s a match meant to be.
It’s the easiest salad to make with minimal ingredients and prep and it goes great with all your favorite summer meals!

How to Make This Coleslaw
First you’ll start out by shredding the kale and cabbage. To do this just cut very thinly into ribbons.
Then in a small mixing bowl whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise, honey, lemon juice and season with salt to taste.
Place the shredded cabbage and kale in a large bowl, pour the dressing over the top and toss to coat.
Add strawberries and gently toss into coleslaw. Serve immediately.
Coleslaw with Seasonal Fruit
Here are a few other variations I’d like to try with this coleslaw during other seasons. Let me know if you try them too!
- In the fall try this with apples in place of the strawberries.
- During the winter try pomegranate arils and dried cranberries, maybe even some tangerines.
- In the spring try apricots.
- Then another good summer option here would be blueberries or raspberries.
