Author Notes: This cole slaw is requested by our friends and family at every gathering, regardless of the season. It is my husband's signature dish, and he almost never measures anything, so he and I are trying to be as precise as possible in listing ingredient amounts. He encourages tasting along the way to the finished product. It is a mayo-based recipe, with the addition of sweet pickle juice and a small can of crushed pineapple. If the mood hits me, I will cut up fresh pineapple for him. We serve My Hubby's Cole Slaw at our annual DC crab cake fest, which takes place every December 23rd. And, while this recipe is not a family heirloom that was handed down to us, Hubby has been making this cole slaw for almost 40 years.Bevi
