Are you tired of the coleslaw rut? This carrot slaw has a totally over the top exotic flavor. It almost transports you to a tropical island. I just made it for a picnic and everyone wanted the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

This is definitely not your basic coleslaw recipe. The earthy flavor from the curry shines in every bite. Along with the pineapple and raisins, your taste buds are taken to the tropics. Super easy to prepare, this will be great at your next BBQ. But make sure to make this ahead of time. The flavors get even better after sitting in the fridge for a few hours.

    You can always add some sugar glazed almond slices for crunch. I have added toasted coconut as well... just sprinkled some over the top. It is awesome!
