American Road Trip: Hawaii

Our final destination on our American Road Trip is Hawaii! Ok, we know you can’t actually drive to Hawaii, but we still wanted to bring you an authentic Hawaiian experience with our Hawaiian Slaw. A bite of this fresh salad filled with tropical fruits and we know you’ll be ready to hula!

What to Do in Hawaii

 

  • Visit Hawaii Volcanos National Park. Explore some of the park’s 333,000 acres and see, Kilauea, an active volcano that produces 250,000-650,000 cubic yards of lava every day!
  • Attend a Lu’au. Hula dancing, singing, and fantastic food – a Lu’au is a great way to experience the culture of the island.
  • Explore.  With ancient sites, tropical forests and luscious beaches there is plenty to see in Hawaii.  So, bike, hike or horseback around the island and see how much you can experience.

What to Eat in Hawaii

 

  • Kona Coffee. With 600 coffee farms within 20 miles you’ll be sure to get your caffeine boost!
  • Shaved Ice. Shaved ice stands are prevalent on the island. Make it your mission to find the best one.
  • Tropical Fruit. Lychees, rambutans, pineapples, and coconuts – Hawaii is filled with sweet fruits that are thoroughly refreshing after a day of exploration. Our Hawaiian Slaw is also a refreshing treat, perfect for any summer occasion. We love this dish so much we even decided to share the recipe with you!

 

HAWAIIN SLAW

What You’ll Need

  • 20 oz. can of pineapple chunks (drain pineapple juice and save for the dressing)
  • 1 ¾ cup salad dressing (available at most grocery stores – try Best Foods or Hellmann) *Don’t use mayo or miracle whip
  • 2 ½ tsp. white sugar
  • 16 cups of green cabbage sliced into small pieces
  • 2 ¼ c. shredded coconut

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the salad dressing, 1 ½ tbsp. of pineapple juice and white sugar. Thoroughly whisk to combine. Set this mixture aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the green cabbage, coconut and pineapple chunks. Pour the dressing mixture over the top and thoroughly mix until all cabbage is coated with the dressing. Allow to chill in refrigerator for the best flavor.

I am glad you got to visit Hawaii on your American Road Trip. Does this tell me you may plan to open up a location here? (fingers crossed — wishing and hoping). I love Soup Plantation & Sweet Tomatoes and I make it one of our first eating stops while in Las Vegas…. Aloha!!!

Hi Beverly – Thanks for stopping by when you can! We don’t currently have any expansion plans but love the tastes of Hawaii and wanted to share with our fans. Hopefully you’ll be able to make it back soon to visit us in Las Vegas!
