My husband and I tried a new Mexican restaurant in town, Tortilla Bar, and everything was great, but I was really excited to replicate the delicious cabbage slaw they served, since I always am looking for better ideas in using my veggies. So, I’m sure this isn’t exactly their recipe, but this is what I came up with, and I’m excited to eat it all summer long!
Spicy Lime Cilantro Slaw
1 small head of cabbage, sliced thinly (purple cabbage looks striking, but green cabbage works as well)
1-2 jalapeno peppers, sliced thinly in rings (seeds and ribs removed, if you want less heat)
2 limes, both the zest and the juice
1/2 c. olive oil
1 handful of cilantro, minced
salt and pepper to taste
Combine the cabbage and the jalapeno in a serving bowl. Grate the zest of two limes on top of the cabbage and toss.
In another bowl, whisk the juice of the two limes with the olive oil. Add the cilantro and the salt and pepper to taste. Combine thoroughly then dress the cabbage. Toss and enjoy!
