Cole Slaw Salad with Pineapple

This is the classic Cole Slaw Salad, with a sweet dressing the way Filipinos like it .The crunchy slivers of cabbage and thin sliced carrots are mixed with homemade dressing of catsup and mayonnaise, sweetened with sugar. The addition of raisins and pineapple chunks make it even more irresistible. Serve this as a side for roasts, grilled entrees or even as a meal in itself. It's light, refreshing and quite easy to put together all year round. This is an Asian In America recipe by Elizabeth Ann Quirino. It's best to make this salad at the same day it's served, at least 6 hours before. Serves 2 to 4 as a side dish.
