Pineapple Buttermilk Coleslaw

Don't let that picture fool ya. I didn't want a big pool of juices for the photo, but soon as I snapped it, I scooped some of those juices out of the bottom of the bowl and poured them right on top of that serving. Y'all, I am not ashamed to say that I actually tilted my plate up to lap up all the juices of this coleslaw. Yep. I sure did. It is that good.

Don B., a reader from Troy, Pennsylvania, shared this favorite recipe with me over email and gave me license to adapt as needed, though truthfully I pretty much just followed his suggestion on adding in a little heat. The rest was just a few adjustments in the ingredient amounts, adding in some carrot and a bit of leftover pickle juice I had in the fridge from some bread and butter pickles. Y'all do save your pickle juice, right?

Here's how to make it.

I think you will love this coleslaw recipe and to quote Don, "be sure to put some on your first plate at the picnic, there probably won't be any left the second time."

  • 1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning (like Slap Ya Mama), or to taste, optional
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 (6 ounce) can pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle juice, optional

In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, carrot, onion and celery. In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and buttermilk until well blended. Whisk in the sugar, salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning, vinegar, pineapple juice, pickle juice and horseradish, if using. Blend and pour over the cabbage mix; toss. Taste and adjust seasonings. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

Substitutes: May also use 1 package of commercially prepared coleslaw mix for the cabbage, substitute 1 (8 ounce) can of crushed pineapple, undrained, for the juice, and/or substitute a mixture of sour cream and mayonnaise, for the mayo, if desired.

Variation: Don says try this with broccoli slaw and a little chopped, cooked bacon, for an excellent Broccoli Salad.
