Pineapple-Almond Slaw Salad

Print Friendly

The day I made this Pineapple-Almond Slaw Salad I was having my mom and sister over for lunch (built-in recipe testers are the best, aren’t they?).  This salad was so delicious (and addictive) with its crunchy texture and sweet/tart/nutty flavor that we all basically inhaled it – and were too full for the rest of lunch!

The flavor of pineapple is highlighted in this recipe and used in two different ways:  it’s pureed into a bright-flavored dressing, and some pieces are left whole for bursts of tangy sweet-tart flavor.  For the full recipe (with step-by-step photo instructions), please check out my recipe on Foodie.

I also entered this recipe into the Dole California Cook-Off Facebook Contest.  If you’d like to participate, you can enter an original starter or appetizer recipe that uses at least one cup of any Dole product.  The prize includes a trip to Los Angeles to compete at The Grove in the 2012 Dole California Cook-Off judged by Celebrity Chef Ben Ford; additionally, the winning recipe contestant receives $10,000 in cash and two runners up each receive cash prizes of $1,000!

In addition to the contest, Dole is also sponsoring a sweepstakes!  Just enter your email address on their Facebook page for the chance to win a trip to Los Angeles to be the Dole Fan Judge joining Chef Ben Ford and a panel of judges in the 2012 Dole California Cook-Off!  Additionally, the sweepstakes winner will receive $500 cash.
