Yesterday my husband’s family had a 4th of July celebration with tons of food and family fun. During the planning phase, I decided to volunteer to bring the cole slaw. Now, I’ve never made cole slaw before in my life… so why did I speak up? I still have no idea! And of course my husband’s family is the type that makes everything from scratch. You can’t just go to the store and buy a bottle of slaw sauce to throw on some cabbage. Oh dear… where to begin…
Then an idea popped into my head. My side of the family leaving for Florida on Friday and one of our favorite places to visit is Pineapple Willy’s in Panama City Beach. They have great beach food and are known for their pineapple cole slaw. PERFECT! I thought I would try to find a similar recipe to create for my husband’s side of the family.
I searched the internet and found Lorri’s Pineapple Coleslaw on Food.com. Just thought I would share the recipe with you! Prep time is only 15 minutes.
- 5 cups cabbage, shredded
- 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple, drained and cut into small pieces (drain all juice from pineapple. DO NOT used crushed.)
- 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons vinegar
- salt and pepper
- Mix cabbage and pineapple.

This looks so good. I’m hosting a recipe only link party today called “Cast Party Wednesday”. This recipe would be a perfect addition. I would love it if you came by and shared some of your recipes with us.
I hope to see you there!
I like pineapple coleslaw but my recipe doesn’t have the half and half. I use yogurt where you use that and less mayo and the result is awesome!!

That recipe sounds so light and perfect for the summer with the pineapple. Yummy! I wanted to invite you to come over and share your recipe at These Chicks Cooked Recipe Spotlight today. Have a great day 🙂
I have tried many recipes for coleslaw, but I never came across one with pineapple in it….I love it.
Hope you can come by and this recipe at Foodie Wednesday
This looks delicious and great for summer! My hubby and I love coleslaw. Thanks for sharing.
Hi, I wanted to thank you for visiting Cast Party Wednesday last week. I would love it if came back tomorrow and shared more of your recipes with me.
I hope to see you there!
I see only cabbage and pineapple in the recipe ingredients: what makes the bright orange colors in the photograph? It looks as if it could be carrots and/or red pepper. Are there indeed other ingredients?
I used a bag of cole slaw mix and it had little bits of carrots and red onion mixed in with the cabbage!
I’m so glad I decided to give this a go after being a bit skeptical, and it was awesome! Packaged tri-color coleslaw mix makes a nice presentation. I was afraid the dressing might be runny so I didn’t add it until right before serving. Thanks for sharing, it’s definitely a keeper! 🙂
Awesome Diane! Glad to hear it worked for you!! One of my favorites 😉
What kind of vinegar did you use?
My family has made pineapple slaw for yrs using miracle whip & crushed pineapple, plus adding small marshmellows. Oh so good! I prefer the pastel colored ones for looks but the plain white is fine.
