Fresh Pineapple Slaw

This Fresh Pineapple Slaw is a delicious and healthy alternative to the traditional mayonnaise based Cole Slaw. It’s a light salad that is packed full of flavor and the perfect compliment to all of your grilled meats, fish or seafood.

Can you believe that it’s already June? Summer is right around the corner. My favorite time of year! I love being outdoors with the sun shining!

Time for beach trips, BBQ’s and picnics. Pack up some of this colorful salad and take it along with you on you next picnic or outdoor adventure. It’s light, fresh and will travel well.

For easy transport, place the salad ingredients in a ziploc bag and the dressing in a jar. Then toss it all together when you ready to serve it. Perfect for your next camping trip!

Serving Suggestions:

To make Fresh Pineapple Slaw I used a combination of red and green cabbages. After slicing the cabbage, place in a colander and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Place the colander in a bowl to allow cabbage to drain thoroughly. Place the colander/bowl in the refrigerator while you prep the other ingredients. This will allow time for cabbage to drain and crisp up.

In a bowl, add the rest of the salad ingredients. In a small bowl mix together the dressing ingredients. Once everything is prepped, add the chilled cabbage to the bowl with the other salad ingredients.

Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat thoroughly. Enjoy!
