Tropical Cabbage Slaw

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Vseward Chef-V

This makes a nice tangy cabbage slaw with a crunch. Great for hot summer days. Serve it as a side dish or have it for lunch. The homemade dressing is the key to this cool salad.

I particularly love cabbage salads, and the mixture of pineapple, carrots and apple with such a tangy and flavorful dressing was just divine!! I did use the pecans (lightly toasted) and found this to be a wonderful summer salad (nice lightly sweet tropical twist to a traditional slaw- with nice crunchy tidbits and a nicely savory sauce!)to accompany all the BBQ items we had at our picnic. Had LOTS of compliments - and requests for the recipe!!! Hope your entry wins you the contest unknown chef!! I really liked this one!
