Mexican Coleslaw
15 mins (prep 15)
9 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is a simple cabbage salad that goes well with any summer meal. I typically serve this with pollo asado tacos (see my recipe for Pollo Asado), and it goes especially well with fish tacos. Sometimes, I use it ON my fish tacos! You can adjust the cilantro to your taste, I know I have many friends that say they don't eat it, but love this salad when I cut back on the cilantro a little bit. Also, adjust the amount of lime juice to your taste, as limes vary greatly in their acidity. To make this extra colorful, you can add 1/2 cup of shredded carrot or 1/4 cup of finely diced red bell pepper. Buen provecho!
