Purple cabbage salad from the garden. It has vegan raw cashew homemade salad dressing.

If possible, organic cabbage from the garden is preferred. Though, the regular varieties will do.

Peel the tough outer parts of the cabbage. 

You can use your manual cheese grater or make it quick and easy using the grater blade of a food processor. 

The food processor makes the process quick and easy.

Shred them into nice thin shreds. Note that the cabbage shrinks in size when shredded and put in the fridge for a couple of hours with the dressing so use the entire cabbage and put them in a large mixing bowl.

Core and prepare the pineapple and cut them in chunks. Don't throw out the pineapple cores because they're very good for juicing

Mix the chunks with the cabbage. Add some other fruits like grapes or raisins if you want.

Put your favorite coleslaw dressing either store-bought or made by yourself from scratch. We used this: Caesar salad dressing without the mayo - this stuff don't spoil outdoors like the mayo so your salad is safe for picnics!

Season with salt and pepper to your liking. 

Note: For an even beautiful color, mix in some shredded carrots at well so you have a combination of orange and purple!

Make it and spike up your barbecue with this tasty colorful salad.

We stuffed some pita pockets and made simple vegetarian lunches eaten with just a few olives! It's a step up from the ever simple green tossed salad recipes we did which were also excellent.
