Today’s recipe is a simple but ooooo soo pretty and sooooo goooood coleslaw.

For a last minute lunch preparation I was running short of ideas. Rushing down the grocery isles I caught a glimpse of a purple beauty! I bought it on impulse. Came home caught sight of pineapples and cucumbers. hmmm that could work!!!

In it all went the chopper. Alongwith some walnuts and raisins. I held on to some of them to top on the salad later.
