Sweet Cole Slaw



Nearly a year ago, we had a friend who took the Mr. and the boy cherub to his favorite BBQ joint in Ft. Worth while we were still living in Texas.

It was so good that the Mr. and the boy cherub took the girl cherub and me back!

I love it when we get to go someplace new!

No doubt, the BBQ was fantastic!

But what was also good, and that my boy cherub loved, was the cole slaw.

Of course, he asked if I can make it.

Well certainly I can . . .

try!

I'm not normally found of cole slaw with a mayonnaise-based dressing.

But this one seemed different.

Not so mayonnaise-y.

It's been nearly a year since we've eaten at that little BBQ joint in Ft. Worth, but I held to my promise and I made my boy cherub the cole slaw.

Sweet Cole Slaw

1 lb. package cole slaw mix
1/2-1 tsp. salt
2/3 cups real mayonnaise
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1 TBSP oil
1 TBSP sugar
1 tsp. celery seed
1- 8 oz can pineapple tidbits, well drained
1/2 cup raisins

In a small jar, whish together the mayonnaise, vinegar, oil, and sugar.  Set to the side.

In a large bowl, place the cole slaw mix.  Sprinkle the top of the cabbage with 1/2-1 tsp. salt.  Allow the cabbage to sit a bit with the salt.

Sprinkle the raisins into the cabbage and the well-drained pineapple.  Toss to mix.

Pour the dressing mixture onto the cabbage and gently toss until well coated.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.
