"I love to serve this unusual and sweet coleslaw in fresh pineapple halves for individual servings at a dinner party. It's also a hit at a large gathering just put in a big bowl and garnished with greens."
Serving Size: 1 (213 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"Made this for a family Christmas get together and really enjoyed it. Left out the coconut and used 2 bags of the shredded cabbage and carrot mix. Great taste. Different twist on the normal coleslaw. Would make again."
"I just used the packaged slaw mix with shredded carrots already in them. I also used half yogurt/half mayo. This was quite different, I loved it! I can see this being a great bringalong."
"I have made this before and just love it! Taking it to a poolside family reunion tomorrow!"
"Fantastic! Nice side dish to my Kahlua pork. The only change I made was to add just a splash of apple cider vinegar to the dressing. I also doubled the dressing because I didn't measure my shredded cabbage."
"I was looking for a recipe for an anniversary laui and thought this sounded good as well as being impressed by the reviews. I am so glad I gave it a try as the word fabulous is an understatement. Who would have thought cabbage, pineapple, mayo, raisins and nuts would equal an outstanding cole slaw? I left out the coconut as it's not a favorite with some famiily members and it still turned out to be heavenly. Fyi, I threw in some roughly chopped macedamia nuts for texture and I heartily recommend doing so as it added a nice surprise. I believe wants would be good as well. This recipe is a keeper!"
"Amazing! I ended up using miracle whip (didn't have any mayo) and sweetened coconut but it was delicious! My whole family loved it - I will definitely be making this again!"
"Made this for a friend's picnic,and was SHOCKED by the response. Friends that never say much about food actually found me at the party to tell me how good it was and get the recipe. I would not only make it again,but I highly recommend it. I used fresh pineapple,and since I could only find sweetened coleslaw I used that. Otherwise I followed the recipe as shown.FANTASTIC!!"
"I'm mainly rating this on how fast it went in my party than my personal opinion. I just got a small bite when I was making it to taste it, but it was gone within 5 minutes of serving it. Everyone raved about it and several people said they liked it best out of all the other 3 salads that were served. I used the pre-packaged cole slaw, canned crushed pineapple and didn't add the coconut because I couln't find flaked unsweetened coconut and didn't feel like grating a fresh one. Thank you!"
"I wasn't too sure about this recipe - cabbage and pineapple? But had some fresh pineapple I needed to use, plus my DH loves coleslaw. Had to use raw almonds, but this was super good. I will be making it often."
"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."
"I made this for a luau. It was good and everyone enjoyed it."
"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!"
"I loved this cole slaw even though I forgot to buy the coconut still it was delicious. Thanks for a great slaw."
"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!"
