Cooking Thursday

Bob's workplace had a summer picnic/potluck recently.  One of the dishes that I enjoyed was an unusual coleslaw.  The woman who made it was happy to share the recipe and I made it myself for Labor Day.  It's a recipe that is simple to make, and is able to be made in advance.  I think you'll like it!

Pineapple Grape Cole Slaw

14 ounce bag coleslaw
20 ounce can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 1/2 cups red grapes, halved
3/4 cup sliced almonds

Dressing:
1/2 cup real mayonaisse
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons poppy seeds

Stir together dressing ingredients and set aside.
In large bowl, mix the coleslaw, pineapple and grapes.  Stir dressing into mix.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.  Before serving, place almonds on top of salad.

This sounds so good! I wonder if poppy seed dressing from a bottle would work for this recipe. Poppy seed dressing is my favorite and I'm so lazy when it comes to cooking. Thanks for sharing, Mari!! Yum!

I make a very similar dressing for mine but haven't tried the nuts and fruit in it! Sounds really good!

Hi Mari! I really enjoy pineapple and grapes, so I think this recipe will be a winner. How fun that the cook was so generous with her recipe!
Happy Thursday :)

This is the way my mother made it oftentimes....if she had everything on hand that is.

That is an unusual recipe with the poppy seeds--can't recall if I've ever seen them in coleslaw! But with the grapes and almonds, it can't be bad!

I can't say I've always had success making coleslaw though...I still remember when I tried to make it on my own. I added the cabbage, raisins, lemon juice, and powdered sugar, but it didn't seem to get to the right consistency. So, I added more and more powdered sugar, but it never worked out. Turns out I had forgotten the mayonnaise! That was one sweet coleslaw...

This sounds really delicious to me!

This looks great! I gotta copy it. I really like salads made with cabbage.

Laura said...

That looks really good! I may have to do some convincing with the other three who live here though... But I'd try it!
