This Cole slaw is going to be one I make again and again! I used an 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple, because I wanted to try a smaller amount of pineapple in case we didn't like it, but other than that it was exact. Very good! We ate it immediately and loved it, but I imagine it will taste even better tomorrow, if possible! Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

I didn't like it. It wasn't sweet enough for me. Perhaps if I would have bought the pineapple in heavy syrup it would have been better. I also thought there was too much onion. I made the recipe exactly as written. It has lots of great reviews I just didn't care for it. Read More

The dressing on this is excellent. However the amount of cabbage is off. I used a 10 ounce package of cole slaw and that could easily be doubled. I couldn't find a 15 oz can of crushed pineapple so I used part of a 20 oz can. Great flavor, but plan on using a lot more cabbage next time. Thanks for a delightful recipe. Read More

Having been raised in Hawaii it was always a given that pineapple went into the Cole slaw, either crushed or tidbits, I use tidbits. Slaw without pine apple always seems like its missing something. Read More

Loved it! I was looking for something different and this was the perfect recipe. Never ever thought about putting pineapple in coleslaw but it really worked. Thank you so much for this unique dish! Read More

the pineapple and stopped when I got to half because it looked right. I also added only half the dressing. It was really delicious! I put it on top of my Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker pork sandwich. Definitely a delicious coleslaw! Read More

I used a 14-oz bag of coleslaw--I have never seen an 8.5-oz bag in the stores here in the Twin Cities. I can't recall now (I made it a few days ago) if I then doubled all the other ingredients (since the amount of coleslaw was nearly double). I didn't have cilantro so used dried parsley. Taste was pretty good. I would likely make this again. Read More
