This Easy Pineapple Coleslaw is going to remind you of summer all year long. Enjoy as a side dish or top your favorite pulled pork sandwich or chicken burger with this one.

Easy Pineapple Coleslaw Recipe

When I think about summer, gratineed pineapple always come to mind.

And even though fresh pineapple is available year-round, pineapple’s peak season runs from March through July. However, this Easy Pineapple Coleslaw utilizes canned pineapple tidbits, making it a simple dish you can tackle regardless of the season.

When it comes to coleslaw, ingredients seem to vary by region and season. There are the more vinegar-based coleslaw dishes, which I also love. And there are the mustard coleslaw recipes.

And while I love coleslaw alongside my avocado bacon burger, I especially love coleslaw when served with my favorite almond crusted fish sandwich.

If I’m being honest, if you put coleslaw in front of me, I’m going to eat it and love every last bite. I’m guessing many of you feel the same way.

The broccoli coleslaw is packaged, making this even easier to put together.

I do prefer Napa cabbage over regular cabbage. If you’ve never tried Napa cabbage, its texture is somewhere between celery and bok choy, an eye-catching vegetable with its curly outer leaves.

What I love about this pineapple coleslaw recipe is that it’s perfectly balanced.

The coleslaw is not too sweet, nor too tangy, but hits all the right parts of your mouth when it comes to flavor.

And let’s not forget pineapple is a powerhouse of nutrition when it comes to potassium and vitamin C. It’s literally loaded with both, making it something we should eat often.

I wish I had this in my refrigerator to accompany my daily meals, I’m pretty sure I could make it work with just about anything.

I have to say it’s the perfect side dish with any type of ham.

Make sure to serve up your easy pineapple coleslaw with small, colorful bowls. I mean, why wouldn’t you?

Get this delicious side dish on your table soon, you won’t be sorry you did.

If you are looking for more fresh and delicious side dish recipes, here are some of my favorites. This Mediterranean Bean Salad is something you can serve with just about anything. Have you ever made a BLT Pasta Salad? It’s time you did. This Avocado and Three Bean Salad is one of the most popular recipes on my site. This Skinny Red Potato Salad is not only delicious, but helps keeps you on track during bikini season. And if you’re lucky enough to be swimming in tomatoes this season, this Tomato and Basil Bake can help ease the burden. This Chili Lime Corn is also one of my favorite side dishes to make for a barbecue.

Three years ago I put together these Avocado Caprese Bites for a party. Needless to say they are still pretty popular in my house. So delicious. My youngest son is a snickerdoodle fan and eight years I made these Banana Snickerdoodles with the hopes the cookie would stay soft as a snickerdoodle should be. It works so give it a whirl. Nine years ago I never knew how much I loved Pan-Seared Scallops until I made them myself.
