Sweet and Sour Coleslaw Recipe in Two Steps!

Our Sweet and Sour Coleslaw recipe is the perfect summertime complement to your meal. Plus, its only two steps and bursting with flavor. Make extra for leftovers!


Summertime salads that are easily made ahead of time are a favorite of mine. They provide a tasty complement to every meal, like our sweet and sour coleslaw recipe. I love to combine different ingredients and flavors into a salad, adding fruits and nuts for both sweetness and crunch.

To create the crunchy, tangy, sweet and sour taste of this coleslaw I added pineapple, almonds, soy sauce, a hint of garlic, and a touch of Chinese Five Spice. Amazingly, I always find the perfect combination when creating a new fusion of spices. This Sweet and Sour Coleslaw recipe is a new, outstanding, addition to my summertime salad repertoire. Make sure you add it to yours!

I’ve included links to my favorite ingredients when possible, but feel free to use any brand you love. I also recommend this KitchenAid Professional Stand Mixer for a great cooking experience.
