This is a simple slaw that is a very tasty side to Mexican dishes or even inside a taco. Easily tweeked to suit any tastes. From Eating Well website.
- 1 (10 ounce) bag coleslaw mix
- 1⁄3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- Wisk cilantro, vinegar, oil and salt in a large bowl.
- Add cabbage and toss well to coat.
The slaw is very fresh tasting but needed a tweak. I made as suggested & served with dinner. IMO it was lacking something. After dinner, I added more olive oil, salt & cilantro. Let it marinate over night, and it was much better at lunch time. I would suggest making it well in advance (12+hours) as it seems to improve in flavor after time and was still crisp. If you like cilantro, add more than suggested. Thanks for posting DDW, a great side with any Mexican meal.
I love this recipe! This is what I now serve with tacos instead of lettuce. I usually add 3-4 sliced green onions, as well.
What an easy and simple recipe but absolutely delightful. Never thought of using cilantro in coleslaw before and we absolutely loved it. Thanks for sharing a new "take" on coleslaw. It's a winner, DDW.
