No-Mayo Broccoli Slaw with Pineapple & Arugula

No-Mayo Pineapple Broccoli SlawUmmm. Pineapple. It is so delicious, can we agree?

In the middle of winter, this beauty, can make you feel like the sun is shining bright!

No-Mayo Pineapple Broccoli Slaw

Let’s create a sunny slaw with the peppery taste of arugula, shall we? Yes, let’s.  I made a sweet citrus vinagrette too, that makes this a really nice and  pretty addition to any meal. I choose a pulled pork situation, as slaw goes so nicely alongside, along with some corn muffins. Yes please. What I like about this recipe is that instead of mayo, I used low fat plain greek yogurt. It is not just a condiment, it has nutritive value- Plus, it tastes fattening, so I like it! The pineapple combined with the dressing is perfect. But don’t let it sit around because, like all coleslaw, this one is better enjoyed soon after mixing.

Let’s get to making this!

No-Mayo Broccoli Slaw with Pineapple & Spinach

This sweet and peppery slaw is just the right compliment to BBQ or a roasted meat dinner.

Ingredients

    For the Slaw:
  • 1 bag broccoli slaw (12oz)
  • 1 cup arugula/spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup diced pineapple (generous)
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • For the Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice or orange juice if you don't have it
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup 2% plain greek yogurt or full fat( not the non-fat)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground mustard

Instructions

  1. Make the dressing: In a bowl, add the juice, honey and vinegar. Whisk. Add the yogurt and salt and mustard. Whisk again until blended thoroughly. Set aside.
  2. To a large bowl, add the slaw, spinach/arugula, pineapple and scallions.Mix gently.
  3. Add the dressing. Mix thoroughly. Serve*.

Notes

* Do not let this sit for too long before serving, as it will get runny. Chill at most 20 minutes- one hour. If you want to mix the salad ahead of time, just add the dressing, just before serving. Easy.

While we are enjoying our pineapple yumminess, we can feel so so good about eating this pretty and sweet fruit that is healthy and has some interesting info. on it!
*from Encyclopedia Brittanica online

  • It is an excellent source of natural anti-inflammatory properties, which is great for joints and heart health- WIN
  • It is low in calories- 70-85 calories a cup!
  • Has 2-3 grams of fiber per cup to help fill you up and keep things moving (ahem).
  • Weird fact: Total world production of pineapples ordinarily averages about 8,300,000 metric tons annually- wow.
  • Weird fact #2: If you cut the leaves of and plant the top, you can grow your own pineapple…that is if you live where it’s always warm- which I do not. But maybe you could!
