Grandma's Banana - Pineapple Coleslaw
This is an unusual and very tasty salad! When my dear grandmother made this for our big family... there was never any leftovers!

How to Make Grandma's Banana - Pineapple Coleslaw
- Shred or chop the cabbage, put in large bowl or pan for mixing salad together. Set aside.
- put pineapple and chopped Mandarin oranges in a bowl (including juices). Add frozen orange juice, mayonnaise and brown sugar. Stir well until a nice sauce is made. Fold in the Cool Whip. Chop up the bananas and toss around in the fruits and juices (this helps meld flavors and prevent bananas from browning)
- Add the cabbage and red and green bell peppers. Stir and toss together until mixed well.
Put in a nice serving container. Cover. Refrigerate at least 20 minutes. Just before serving: stir and toss salad to give it a fresh mixed look. Serve family style or in little dishes.
*** You can garnish with maraschino cherries and Mandarin oranges if desired.
