Spring Coleslaw Salad

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 Coleslaw Salad                                                       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.

      This recipe is from the 1960’s. It’s easy, healthy and pretty. I love recipes on the internet, but this salad has them beat. Oops, I guess I’ve added it to the internet (snicker).
