This was a nice spin on slaw! I used green onions and a seeded jalapeno. The combination of sweet and spicy were a hit. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Boy we loved this coleslaw! I used jalapeno pepper instead of scotch bonnet and left out the onions. We really loved the spicy pepper with the sweetness of the other ingredients. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Made for ZWT9, The Apron String Travelers

Excellent coleslaw! The shredded coconut was wonderful in this along with the pineapple. I don't get fresh coconut here often, so I'll make this again as soon as I can get some again :)<br/>Made for ZWT 9 Family Picks for The Apron String Travelers
