Island Lover Tropical COLE SLAW - 52 Grilling Secret Extras Side Dishes

Pin It Now!

I do LOVE this recipe.  A wonderful upgrade to that simple bagged cole slaw that will make your guests think you are truly the master of your domain (the back yard BBQ)!

I have been on a mission lately to post upgrades to that bag of cole slaw you can buy any just about any grocery store.  This recipe adds a tropical sweet element to the flavors.  Mango and Pineapple, plus some colorful additions, plus a very simple to whisk together mayo slash mustard vinaigrette will have your guests asking for this recipe.

BREAD RING (Bread Machine easy) Recipe
You may recognize my sandwich, always a crowd pleaser for your BBQ.  The Bread Ring  sandwich shown is a spectacular look, combining this cole slaw, pickles, my 4 ingredient Root Beer Pulled Pork (Crock Pot Easy); forms that wonderful look (and outstanding taste).

This sandwich can be served cold, or you can prep all of the ingredients in advance, keep the pulled pork warm in a crock pot and assemble the sandwich in minutes just before serving to have something hot.

But the secret is this sweet, crunchy, savory Cole Slaw...

Enjoy indeed!
