Hawaiian Slaw

I am from the south and us southerners love our barbecue. The sweet and tangy sauce on some meat...yummy. Along with good barbecue usually comes a delicious cole slaw, especially if pulled pork is on the table. I was not always a fan of cole slaw but if there is one thing I learned over the years is that your tastes buds change as you get older. So I gave it a try now and then and the sweeter the cole slaw the more I liked it. It dawned on me while eating my Hawaiian Pulled Pork Sliders (link and pic below) that maybe I can give my slaw a Hawaiian twist so this is what I came up with and it is so yummy!!! Bring this to your next barbecue, it is a huge hit!

Hawaiian Slaw

1 16 oz. bag cole slaw (just the veggies)
2 cups chunk pineapple (you can use fresh I use can typically)
1 cup light mayo
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. sugar
1/2 cup macadamia nuts 
1/4 cup golden raisins

Mix all ingredients together well in a large bowl.
Refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours (this gives all the flavors time to get to know each other)
This recipe goes great with my sliders as pictured below (link below pic)!
