Cilantro Lime Coleslaw

We often eat Mexican dishes in our home and I am always looking for creative side dishes that compliment these spicier main dishes.  This cilantro lime coleslaw does the trick.  It is refreshing and has a touch of sweet that helps cool off a spicy main dish.

This is a rare coleslaw that does NOT require mayonnaise and that makes me happy.  My kids love this cilantro lime coleslaw as well.  The sweet taste of the slaw really pleases their appetite.

What you need:

  • 4 cups of thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 2 cups of thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 4 thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of raw local honey
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt

What you do:

Combine red and green cabbage, green onions, sea salt, pepper, and cilantro in a large bowl.

Add dressing mixture to veggie mixture and stir until completely mixed together.  Serve immediately or refrigerate to serve at a later time.  Note:  if you do store it in the refrigerator the red in the cabbage may run, it will still taste yummy but may appear a bit pink.
