Cilantro and Green Cabbage Slaw - Tucson's El Charro

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Mme M

The dressing can also be used with enchiladas, and is very good with seafood filled enchiladas. Use Garlic Puree - Tucson's El Charro. Chef Carlotta Flores, owner of El Charro Cafe.

This is a keeper!!! Had to make some adjustments, used lemon instead of lime, but turned out great. Even my dad liked it and he doesn't like cabbage. We put it on top of our steak tacos, YUM

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the dressing, combine the oil, lime juice, vinegar, salt, and lemon pepper in a jar with a tight lid. Shake well to mix.
  2. For the salad, in a large bowl, mix the cabbage and cilantro and toss with the dressing. Add in the rest of the ingredients (finely mince the 2 garlic cloves, and add those if you aren't using garlic paste) and toss lightly, or place these other vegetables around the salad platter as a garnish.
  3. If you want, add some crumbled cojita or other Mexican white cheese for added flavor.
