Ingredients
For the pineapple slaw:
  • 4 cups purple cabbage, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup grated carrots, about 1 carrot
  • 1 cup ripe pineapple, cut into chunks
  • ¾ cup mango, ripe but not soft and sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp cilantro leaves, minced
  • 1 jalapeno or scotch bonnet pepper, diced
For the dressing:
  • ⅓ cup vegan mayo, soy free if paleo
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh pineapple juice*
  • a squeeze of lime juice
  • ½ - 1 tbsp sweetener of choice, more or less to taste*
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Add cabbage, carrots, pineapple, mango, cilantro and pepper to a large bowl, toss to combine and set aside
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and whisk well to combine
  3. Taste and adjust seasoning to suit
  4. Slowly add mayo mixture to veggies a little at a time until desired consistency is reached. You may end up with extra dressing depending on how 'saucy' you prefer your coleslaw
  5. Refrigerate for at least an hour and mix again before serving
Notes
Sub fresh citrus juice if you don't have the pineapple
I used agave but any sweetener should work
