This delicious recipe was copied from a Better Homes and Garden Salad Book that my mother-in-law gave me in the 1960’s. Normally sugar and vinegar would be added, but this recipe gets a natural tartness from the pineapple and it’s sweetness from the apples.
Spring Calico Coleslaw
3 cups shredded crisp green cabbage ½ cup shredded red cabbage
1 9-ounce can (1 cup) Pineapple tidbits drained 1 cup diced un-pared apples
½ cup mayonnaise ½ cup chopped celery
1 cup tiny marshmallows (optional)
Combine by mixing mayonnaise until it coats all ingredients. Apple wedges can be added for trim around the bowl, for this healthy salad. Serves 4 to 6 people. As a shortcut, I bought a package of pre-shredded coleslaw and then chopped and added red cabbage.
