A delicious, fresh tasting coleslaw made from Pineapple Topping (that is normally served over ice-cream), mustard, a dash of cinnamon and coconut. Tossed with shredded cabbage, fresh parsley and celery seed! Perfect for home or restaurant!

Makes 2 cups dressing, approx. 7 cups coleslaw

Make the dressing first.

2 c. GFS (Gordon Food Store) Pineapple Topping

1/3 c. prepared yellow mustard

1/4 c. light-colored vinegar mixed with 2 T. cornstarch till dissolved

a light dash cinnamon

1/8 t. celery seed

1/2 c. unsweetened dried coconut (the larger flakes/strips found in bulk at whole food stores or the dried fruit and nut section of the grocery)

1/2 t. salt

1 sm. cabbage shredded or sliced thinly

1/2 c. finely chopped onion (to be sure it’s fine, slice paper thin slices of onion first, then chop finely from there)

a couple handfuls of flat leaf parsley, chopped

sprinkle of celery seed

In small saucepan combine pineapple topping and mustard. Cook over medium-low heat, while stirring to incorporate the mustard into the pineapple. Cook about 5 minutes.

When the dressing begins to boil, add the vinegar/cornstarch mixture, stirring continuously till thickened.

Add cinnamon and celery seed; stir to incorporate. Then cook on low heat, at a rupture of a boil, for 5 minutes longer, stirring as needed.

Add coconut, stir to submerge and let set off the heat till warm.

Refrigerate till very cold, stirring now and then – several hours.

When ready to use, remove from refrigerator, add salt, stir well and use.

In large bowl place cabbage, onion, parsley and a sprinkling of celery seed. Toss well.

Add as much dressing as you like (I used it all). Toss well (it will take longer than with a mayonnaise based dressing) to evenly distribute, and serve.

Notes: Unlike most coleslaws that water down significantly overnight, this one doesn’t, making it a perfect fit for restaurants that normally throw away at the end of the night any unused coleslaw.

This dressing doesn’t form a ‘skin’ on the surface while refrigerated, like most cornstarch thickened pudding do.
