Great salad! I used crushed canned pineapple and could only find sweetened coconut. I added the macadamia nuts and I think they really top off the salad. I made it for a hawaiian night. We ate it with Chicken curry and white rice. Everyone loved the sweetness of this coleslaw.

Yum! I made this recipe for 80 people for a Hawaiian wedding. The main dish was a pig roast so the hawaiian coleslaw was a perfect compliment to the menu.

Wow! What a delightfully refreshing change from your run-of-the-mill coleslaw! It was a perfect addition to our Hawaiian-themed party. I used the packaged coleslaw mix and used canned chunks of pineapple. It was a hit and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is planning a Hawaiian feast! It's a real keeper! Thanks for sharing Geema!

Served with Kalua Pork, was one of the best coleslaws I have tasted. I got lots of compliments on it.

This is a nice change from the usual coleslaw. I did not add the raisins as I had none but it was still good. I did use the fresh pineapple. Also used cashews instead of macadamia as I have a severe allergy to them. It was still good. Will make this again.

This was amazing! So delicious. I made it for my Christmas Dinner. Was so impressed with the flavor meld. Definitely use fresh pineapple for this one. Yumm-o!

Took this to a family cookout and we liked the freshness of this slaw. I will use canned pineapple the next time for a little more sweetness - personal preference. I didn't have macadamia nuts so I used chopped pecans. A nice variation of the usual coleslaw. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

Very good! I made 2 versions of this. My dh does not like cabbage or mayonnaise. So I made some for him with just the carrot, pineapple, coconut, raisins & macadamia nuts. I added the rest of the ingredients to mine. We both enjoyed it very much. This was very refreshing. Thank you very much!
