It's summer and coleslaw or cole slaw (I have seen it spelled both ways!) is the perfect cool accompaniment to burgers and grilled foods -- meat or vegetarian.
Tonight I grilled fresh wild caught salmon steaks and made my Hawaiian Pineapple coleslaw to go along with it. It was a delicious pairing of flavors.
Hawaiian Pineapple Coleslaw Recipe
1 1/2 cup shredded cabbage
1/4 cup shredded purple cabbage
1/4 cup grated carrots
1 cup shredded or chopped fresh Hawaiian pineapple
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Chill before serving.
Be creative in your cooking and use what you like. For example if you don't like cabbage, substitute with all carrots or carrot and jicama. Use more or less of your favorite mayonnaise and add vinegar and pepper to your taste. If you have to use canned pineapple go ahead, but remember you can always buy fresh Hawaii pineapples online.
