Introduction: Cilantro Lime Coleslaw

About: I am a former community manager here at Instructables. I'm interested in baking, crafty things, and learning new ways of making!

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!
