A light and fresh coleslaw, that gets it’s sweetness from crushed pineapple. No mayo, makes it a great side dish for summer gatherings. Very figure friendly!

Made with very few ingredients. If you like pineapple, you’ll enjoy this coleslaw. A helping of this coleslaw would go great with grilled chicken, and grilled sweet corn. Sounds like the perfect summer meal!

Sweet Pineapple Coleslaw:

My husband gave this coleslaw a thumbs up! I made a crock-pot chicken, roasted asparagus, crescent rolls, and this sweet pineapple coleslaw, for dinner. I was surprised that he liked it! He normally doesn’t like fruity dishes. I really enjoyed this coleslaw, too. It was light, crispy, crunchy, slightly sweet, and easy to make. We went back for seconds, on this one.

Looking for a simple dish to take to a BBQ? Well… here you go. It doesn’t have any mayo, or salad dressing. So you don’t have to stress about it being outdoors. It’s a great make-ahead dish for any lunch, or dinner occasion.

    I love how light this is! I’ve recently learned I like cole slaw (after avoiding it for YEARS), this looks like such a fun, tasty spin!

    This sounds so good and easy to make, l never thought to put pineapple in it.
