pineapple broccoli slaw

To put it bluntly, I have the worst knife skills ever. I will be shocked if I don’t need stitches by the end of the year for all of the chopping I’ve been doing lately. And it takes me so long to prep / chop veggies. Like painfully long. I hate chopping veggies. So when I found Trader Joe’s pre-chopped Broccoli Slaw, I was in luck! Eating it plain and by itself? Well, it’s pretty terrible. Don’t do it. Instead, I figured out a great slaw you can make and it’s just in time for Memorial Day Weekend.

I’m all about brainless recipes and this is pretty much as brainless as it gets. If you want to get crazy with it, add some extra raisins. Or if you’re really racy, some extra mustard. The nice thing is that the homemade mayo adds so much more flavor to the slaw than you’ll ever get with a store bought.
