This is a refreshing alternative to the traditional coleslaw
1/2 of a large head of cabbage, shredded
3 cups of carrots cut into thin matchstick strips (2 to 3 inches long)
3 cups fresh pineapple cut into tidbits
1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about the yield from one lemon)
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp Splenda for baking
1 cup of Hellman's Light Mayonnaise
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and chill for 30 minutes before serving. This will make about 12 1-cup servings.
