READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by princessmommie

A combination of Kalyn's Kitchen's Spicy Mexican Slaw and few adaptions of mine to eliminate the mayo in the dressing.

What a yummy change this coleslaw is. Love that there is no mayo in this slaw. The lime, honey and chipotle make a refreshing dressing for this tasty slaw. Made using bagged cabbage slaw blend which has red cabbage and carrots in it verses chopping up a head of cabbage other then that made as written. Think the suggest of serving immediately is the best one. Will be making this often. Thanks for the post.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thinly slice cabbage. Slice green onions, and wash, dry and chop cilantro. Combine cabbage, green onions and cilantro in large salad bowl.
  2. Process lime juice through chipotle in adobo sauce, if desired, in a blender until blended.
  3. Mix dressing into cabbage mixture. Season to taste with pepper and serve immediately, or chill for a few hours.
  4. This salad will keep well overnight in the refrigerator, but the lime juice will cause the red cabbage to bleed color and turn the salad slightly pink.
