Introduction: Cilantro Lime Coleslaw

This variation on classic cole slaw has beautiful color and a sweet and tangy flavor. It goes great with fish tacos or barbecue sandwiches!

Step 1: Ingredients

  • one small head of red cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 c of fresh cilantro, minced
  • 2-3 green onions, diced
  • 2 limes, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp honey

Step 2: Prep the Vegetables

Shred your cabbage using either a box grater or a food processor.

Chop up the green onions and cilantro.

Zest your limes, then cut them in half and juice.

Step 3: Prep the Dressing

Mix the cumin, lime zest and juice, garlic powder, vinegar and honey in a bowl.

Step 4: Mix It Up

Place the cabbage, green onions and cilantro into a large bowl and then pour on the dressing. Mix well and season with salt to taste.

Step 5: Store and Serve

Keep the slaw in the fridge until ready to serve. It went great with shrimp tacos!

Woah, this looks gorgeous. And Delicious! The words 'Cilantro' 'Lime' and 'Coleslaw' are some of my favorite when it comes to meals. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
