Cherry, Orange Jalapeno Slaw

Skylar Rae Cherry, Orange-Jalapeno Slaw

This is an easy, fresh slaw that beautifully balances the subtle sweet notes of Stemilt’s Skylar Rae cherries with a hint of heat.

A hint of heat is delivered by the addition of green onions and jalapeno in this mix, and the bright, tangy drizzle of a fresh lime-infused viniagrette. It’s a great side to most any grilled entree (like Heinen’s Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon!). Here, we’ve used a packaged, pre-shredded slaw (with both green and red cabbage and carrots) to make assembly quick and easy.


  • 1/2 lb. Stemilt Skylar Rae Cherries, stemmed, pitted and halved
  • 2 navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 6 cups mixed cabbage “slaw”
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, cored, seeded and minced

for the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. peach jam
  • pinch salt


In a large bowl, combine cherries, orange segments, cabbage slaw, green onion and jalapeno. Set aside.

In a separate bowl whisk fresh lime juice, olive oil, cider vinegar, honey and peach jam until jam is fully incorporated. Add a pinch of salt to taste. Drizzle vinaigrette over slaw and toss until mixed through. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
