Pineapple Peanut Coleslaw Alfresco

Summer is here! YAY! Time for alfresco dining.

One of the side dishes that was a hit at this alfresco meal was
The Pineapple Peanut Coleslaw.

Nothing fancy, but this combination of ingredients is a winner.

A small can of crushed pineapple is drained.

Napa cabbage is thinly sliced.
The crinkled leaves give a good texture to coleslaw.

Sliced scallions and cilantro are added.

Equal parts of mayonnaise and sour cream are blended together with pineapple.
Add peanuts and toss. Season with salt and pepper.

Let’s eat!
Where’s the beef?

We’re looking forward a long summer with plenty of grilling and outdoor dining ahead.

How ’bout you?
