Sweet Coleslaw Recipe

My family loves slaw. When we go out to eat, if coleslaw is an option, we order it. There is nothing like a sweet coleslaw recipe.



Texas Coleslaw

Keeping that my family is a lover of coleslaw recipes, I decided to recreate one of my favorite slaws, cattlemens steak house slaw. This slaw recipe is so unique, that it will be your favorite too.

I had gone to this cattleman’s steakhouse and what I was impressed with was their sweet coleslaw recipe. It was a pineapple coleslaw. This sweet restaurant slaw was so creamy and yummy. What really surprised me about this about this pineapple slaw was there were no onions in it.



Pineapple Slaw

Instead, cattleman’s steakhouse it was a coleslaw recipe with pineapple.  This Texas coleslaw recipe was amazing. I did a little research on the internet and I found a few copycat recipes for coleslaw with pineapple. I combined a few copycat cattleman’s steakhouse slaw recipes together to create this yummy texas coleslaw recipe.

Hi Deanna, any reason why I couldn't use full-fat milk?

I just always use 2%, but I don't see why you could not use it!

I used cream instead of milk because I'm bad! I ended up not adding the pineapple because the slaw is SO PERFECT and I think it will hold up better for just my husband and myself. When I make it for company I will follow your directions exactly and add the pineapple. I used Heinz Real Mayonaisse. Thank you for this recipe. Best slaw dressing ever. It is mild and delicious like the Cattleman's.

I made this recipe for a family cookout. It was a huge hit! My hubby had eaten the pineapple coleslaw at Cattleman’s raved about it. He said the coleslaw made using this recipe was better than the restaurant version. He doesn’t normally eat coleslaw but he said he would eat it anytime I make it using this recipe. I made this the day prior to the cookout and it was really creamy and absolutely perfect.
