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…
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
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.
This slaw makes a great side dish for smoked or grilled meats, such as…. (pictured below top to bottom, L to R are BBQ Brisket, grilled Chicken Bombs, Bistecca or Chimichurri Steak, Chopped Pepper Steak with Blue Cheese Garlic Butter, grilled Texas Redfish, PiriPiri Chicken, Pork Loin, grilled Kielbasa, and Korean Style Ribs).
Have a blessed meal, my friend! ❤
