Mrs H’s Fruity Coleslaw

Mrs H’s Fruity Coleslaw

This salad makes a terrific side for any BBQ meal, but honestly, I could eat the whole bowl of this all by itself for dinner.  Hey, and small tip (take it or leave it)… when I am taking this for a church pot luck or another big get-together I keep the dressing and the slaw separate from each other until the last-minute before serving.  I prefer my slaw crunchy not wilted, and creamy rather than runny.

Okay, let’s get this party started…

Bowls n Spoon

Ingredients

1½ cups Hellmann’s Mayonnaise

2 tsp. True Lemon powder (available in the seasonings section of the grocery store, https://www.truelemon.com/product/true-lemon-shaker/)

2 Tbsp. sugar

1 small can crushed pineapple, drained (juice discarded, or saved for something else)

7 cups shredded and chopped green cabbage

½ cup thinly sliced and diced Fuji apple (skin on, core and stem removed) – if not serving right away toss in a baggie with some lemon juice to prevent browning.

¼ cup white raisins (must be white, no icky dark raisins)

½ cup chopped green bell pepper

¼ cup slivered, toasted almonds

Directions

In small bowl, mix Mayo, True Lemon powder, sugar, and crushed pineapple together, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.  (The reason I use True Lemon powder instead of juice is just to create the creamiest texture).

In large bowl toss cabbage, apple, raisins, and bell pepper.  Cover and keep in fridge until ready to serve.

Just before serving toss dressing with cabbage and then toss in almonds.  Serve immediately.

About mrshlovesjesus

Hello, and welcome to my little cul-de-sac on the web. It is a delight to make your acquaintance. Before you read another word, please go grab yourself a beverage and something yummy to nibble on, and then come back, flop down in your comfy chair, and take your time reading the rest. OH MY…what is that little yumminess you have there? I’d love your recipe! Where do I start? I’m a sixty-something (shhhhhhhhh), still-doesn’t-know-what-she-wants-to-be-when-she-grows-up wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, niece, cousin, aunt, stranger, and friend, with a fiendish hankerin’ for spoiling people. I was born and raised in the fly-over country of Wyoming’s Rocky Mountains, which might explain my natural ability to fritter away hours dreaming up stuff to do (‘cause there was nothing to do except what we dreamed up to do). I’ve decided on the senior side of life, that my favorite things are cooking up something new in the kitchen, crafting something homemade for my walls, excavating treasures from the living words of God, tinkering a little bit in my yard and garden, and nurturing relationships with the precious people God has graciously placed in my life. I pray if you have stumbled here by some devine happenstance, that you will find a treasure and that God will get the glory. Please, by all means ransack through all my recent posts and try any of it out that you like. I’m sure it will all look cuter on you anyways. Someday I hope to hear all about it! The Father's great peace and blessings to you friend!
