Cilantro-Jalapeño Slaw

I have not always been a coleslaw lover, by any means, but, it has grown on me. In fact, now I love it. This slaw has very little mayonnaise and it is mixed with lime juice and vinegar so, it doesn't even have a strong mayonnaise taste, at all.

Now for a little warning, this slaw is to be eaten in place of where you would like to eat a jalapeño. I love jalapeños as much as the next girl, but I really feel that this slaw works best on tacos, fajitas, burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, etc. And when I say works best, I mean it is absolutely amazing.

This recipe is really easy to whip up and packs serious punch. Next time you are having a sandwich and thinking a jalapeño would go great on this, julienne it up and make a slaw!

4 cups of Red Cabbage, shredded
4 tablespoons of Cilantro, chopped
2 Jalapeños, julienned and seeded
1/3 cup of Mayonnaise
4 tablespoons of Lime Juice
2 tablespoons of Green Onions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon of Rice Wine Vinegar, apple cider vinegar would work in place
1 clove of Garlic, minced

First, in a medium bowl mix the cabbage, cilantro, and jalapeños together.

Next, in a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lime juice, onions, vinegar, and garlic.

Now, pour the marinade over the slaw and mix well.

Let this mixture chill for at least 30 minutes.


Happy Cooking,
