This recipe is great as a side and super tasty for tacos, too!

I remember as a kid how my mom would add cabbage to her “Caldo de Res,” beef and vegetable soup. I always thought that was my favorite way to eat cabbage, until one day while making her beef soup, my mom had a piece of cabbage left over. That is how this crunchy cilantro slaw recipe was introduced to me! 

Wow! It was the greatest thing since jicama with chile and lime! I think because of enjoying the cabbage fresh all those years, I also prefer my cilantro coleslaw without mayonnaise. 

Directions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl. Toss with tongs, then taste for salt.
  2. Cover and chill for 1 hour before serving.
