Medicated Coleslaw

With spring right around the corner and who knows, we might actually get to have cookouts this year, I decided to share my medicated Coleslaw recipe.  Now, there are a lot of ways to do this, but I really like the fun slaw methods.  One of my favorites is a Hawaiian slaw that always is a hit, especially at a Pig Roast or Luau. This slaw has got the traditional ingredients of cabbage and carrots, but it’s bumped up a notch into tropical nirvana with the addition of fresh pineapple chunks, black sesame seeds, and a ginger-soy lime vinaigrette.

This Hawaiian style coleslaw is super healthy too – which helps in the being bikini-ready department, as well as, taking you to “Flavor Island.” My favorite part is that it goes well with so many different proteins; sausages, chicken, pork this might become your new go-to summer slaw!!  So let’s cross our fingers and hope 2021 brings back spring and summer BBQs because we could use them!!
