Sweet Spring Slaw with Creamy Pineapple Dressing

Why this is a Foodgasm? Regular cole slaw has been played out- this is a sweet and slightly savory version of the classic absolutely perfect for a spring or summer barbeque. The creamy pineapple dressing bring in more sweet but also adds a little savory aspect making this the perfect replacement to that old boring slaw!

This is a 1 point foodgasm! (Recipe yields 7 servings)

What you need:
1 bag of cole slaw mix
4 strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup blueberries
4 slices of fresh pineapple
4 tbsp light sour cream
1 tbsp EVOO
salt and pepper to taste

How you make it:
In a large bowl add the cole slaw mix, strawberries and blueberries.  In a food processor place the pineapple slices, sour cream, EVOO and pulse until well pureed.  Taste the dressing and add salt and pepper to taste.  I like to add more pepper than salt to give it that little bite to contrast with the sweet flavor.
