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!
I didn`t use the optional pecans And I wish I had them to use because I think that is what was missing in this recipe. This was just ok but somewhat healthy except for all the fat. The fat would be much lower because this could serve 8-10 people easily. Nice try.
