This coleslaw is perfect with kalua pork! It would also be great with bbq meat. I used bagged slaw mix to speed things up. Be sure to let it chill for at least an hour so the flavors feta chance to mix.

Ingredients:
4 c shredded cabbage
1 c pineapple, diced or crushed
3/4 c raisins
3/4 c shredded coconut
1/2 c slivered almonds
1/2 c canola oil
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
Juice of 2 limes
Salt and pepper

Combine in a large bowl.

Serves 8.
