Mexican Coleslaw

Image-30 For some unexplainable reason, coleslaw is something my kids will almost always eat.  I make a southern style slaw often, but thought I would change things up a bit tonight.

I made chicken taquitos and wanted something “living” to eat along side of it so I threw this together.  It turned out to be a hit for the whole family!

Mexican Coleslaw
serves 6-8 people

What I used: 

  • 1 small head of cabbage
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro

For the dressing

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime (1 lime)
  • 1-2 tsp raw honey
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder

What to do:

  • Finely chop or shred cabbage, carrot, red onion and cilantro.
  • Mix together.
  • In a jar, combine olive oil, lime, honey, cumin and chili powder.  Place lid on and shake to combine ingredients.
  • Add the dressing to the vegetables and mix well.
  • You can serve immediately or let sit in refrigerator for a few hours.

Hope you enjoy!
