My Favorite Cole Slaw

I know that coleslaw seems more like a summer food but cabbage is still in season right now and coleslaw seems like a perfect side dish to so many of my favorite meals….BBq beef brisket, Carnitas and my most favorite…. fish tacos.

I don’t make the typical cole slaw. I love lots of flavor so I add lots of different veggies and also on occasion I add some pineapple.

Here is my favorite version of an “Island” coleslaw with a simple, nutritious and DELICIOUS dressing.


1/2 head green cabbage, chopped

1/2 head red cabbage, chopped

3 carrots, grated

1/2 bunch cilantro, finely chopped

3 green onions, finely chopped

1 jalapeno pepper, minced

1 cup finely diced Pineapple (optional)

1/3 cup toasted slivered almonds


2/3 cup good quality mayonnaise (I prefer using mayo made with Avocado Oil)

2 TBS. Apple Cider Vinegar

3 TBS. Raw Honey

Salt & Pepper to taste


1.Chop all the Veggies and Mix them together

2.Whisk together the dressing

3. Toss salad!

I love this slaw alongside any hearty and meaty dish or just by itself with a drizzle of sciracha!!
