    Jostlori's Note:

    This is a simple cabbage salad that goes well with any summer meal. I typically serve this with pollo asado tacos (see my recipe for Pollo Asado), and it goes especially well with fish tacos. Sometimes, I use it ON my fish tacos! You can adjust the cilantro to your taste, I know I have many friends that say they don't eat it, but love this salad when I cut back on the cilantro a little bit. Also, adjust the amount of lime juice to your taste, as limes vary greatly in their acidity. To make this extra colorful, you can add 1/2 cup of shredded carrot or 1/4 cup of finely diced red bell pepper. Buen provecho!

      Love the fresh flavors! An excellent complement to any Mexican meal (I recommend the red pepper - festive Mexican flag colors).

      This was so easy and really good. I will use this often. We had it along with some grilled chicken breasts. Thanks for posting.
