Slaw is a southern staple. It’s used as a topping on sandwiches and as a side dish. Southern Pineapple Slaw is a great side that has a different taste.
Dress you slaw up with pineapple for a whole new taste. The flavors blend nicely and give a new twist to an old favorite. This is an easy recipe and does not take long. It doesn’t have loads of ingredients either.
My recipe is for a bigger family or for a pot luck dinner. Just cut it in half if you want to test drive the recipe or if you’re just looking for a side dish for your family.
- Be sure to shred your cabbage first thing. Then mix that with the pineapple and almonds. You'll need a big bowl obviously with 8 cups of cabbage. I does settle though but still is quite a good sized amount.
- In a smaller bowl, mix up the salt, sugar, mustard, mayonnaise, and vinegar. Whisk that well.
- Pour the sauce mix over the cabbage mix and toss until the cabbage mix is evenly coated.
- Seal this in an airtight container and chill. This is a good one to make the night ahead, but it can be served after a few hours of chilling.
