Cilantro Slaw


I love cole slaw but hate mayonaisse, so I am always making vinegar based slaw.  I came across this recipe and had to try this new slaw variation! It didn’t call for vinegar but after reading the reviews, I did decide to add a couple splashes of it anyway. I used balsalmic vinegar. I love cilantro so this was a perfect, healthy dish for me to make. Very refreshing!

Cilantro Slaw


12 ounces purchased shredded three-color coleslaw mix
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


Place coleslaw mix and cilantro in large bowl. Whisk canola oil, lime juice, salt, and pepper in medium bowl to blend. Add to cabbage mixture; toss to coat.
