Apple Pineapple Slaw with Honey Mustard Dressing

Every so often I hunger for nostalgic foods like those I enjoyed as a kid. Unfortunately, I didn’t inherit many recipes in the form of documented recipes, those that are most often hand-written on little cards or recorded on scraps of yellowed paper or in notebooks. But then I’m not sure that any of my grandmother’s baked or cooked from written down recipes.

The one thing I do remember quite vividly is that both my grandmothers and my great grandma were all very good cooks. It seems that they always were very creative in knowing just what ingredients would complement each other so that everything came out just right and tasted good in the final dish. To me, they seemed to come by cooking naturally. Their methods were always a scoop of this, a pinch of that, or this many of whatever was going into the bowl or pot.

Most of the family recipes that were passed to me from my grandmothers were recited or were gained somewhat through osmosis, I guess, as I watched them prepare food for our family in their kitchens.

We didn’t eat fancy when I was growing up. And, it was a rare treat when we ate things like fresh pineapple. This particular recipe variation on traditional coleslaw is a little bit of a stretch on the sweet Apple Pineapple Slaw that I remember eating when I was a kid. That one I think included little white marshmallows and relied on a salad dressing to bind it together.

Nevertheless, the apples and fresh pineapple have remained in this recipe, and I’ve updated the taste with a honey mustard sauce and added some chopped green onions to add a little extra crunch.

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Call Me…

Throughout my life, I’ve called upon God through many of my troubles. Admittedly, some of those troubles have been of my own making, while others have been completely outside of my control. I’ve always thought that it’s a very good thing that God doesn’t distinguish between the troubles that we deserve and those that we don’t deserve.
