  • 16 ounces broccoli slaw
  • 3 cups angel hair coleslaw, you can substitute very thinly sliced cabbage
  • 20 ounces pineapple tidbits in natural pineapple juice, (reserve ⅓ cup of the pineapple juice but drain the remaining juice)


  • 1 cup mayonnaise, your favorite brand
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Add the broccoli slaw, angel hair coleslaw, and pineapple tidbits to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the reserved pineapple juice, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, sugar, cracked black pepper, and kosher salt to a small mixing bowl. Whisk the dressing until completely smooth and well incorporated.
  • Pour the dressing over the slaw. Use tongs to mix the coleslaw together until completely coated. Cover the coleslaw and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. The longer the coleslaw is chilled, the better the flavor will be. Serve with your favorite main dish.


  • If you can't find angel hair coleslaw, you can make your own by slicing cabbage very thinly or, in a pinch, using a regular bagged cabbage mixture instead from the grocery store.
  • If you love this pineapple slaw and plan to make it frequently, double, or even triple the dressing and store the extras in a mason jar in the fridge for next time.
  • You can alternatively add all the coleslaw to a 2-gallon Ziploc bag to mix the coleslaw together and also to store the coleslaw. This will lessen the number of dishes to clean up.
