After spending so many hurried days with my boys’ schedules during their school year, I am looking forward to the slower pace of summer. Rushing out to swim and merit badge classes, museum hoping, and squeezing in time to cook outdoors. 🙂 Seriously, that’s the best part for me. I hate cooking in a hot kitchen during the summer.

Pineapple Coleslaw (courtesy of Bigmista)

1 bag pre-shredded cabbage

1 can crused pineapple

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tsp salt

2 tsp black pepper

1/4 cup brown sugar

Put shredded cabbage and crushed pineapple in a large bowl. In a separate jar, mix apple cider vinegar, salt, black pepper and brown sugar. Shake well and pour dressing into cabbage/pineapple mix. Give coleslaw a quick toss and enjoy.

For Bigmista’s recipes on brine, savory rub, and Moink balls, send me a comment or e-mail.

Visit my other blog Greenery in Mommyhood to read about the summer grilling package Fresh&Easy sent me. It was just what I needed after my trip to Miami.

Thanks Fresh&Easy!
