    Cookgirl's Note:

    From a local publication via The Kansas City Star and slightly rearranged by me. For convenience, use a package of shredded coleslaw mix but be sure it's fresh and good quality. To make this a main dish, add cubed and grilled chicken or turkey, hard boiled egg, tempeh, etc.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 head white cabbage, cored and shredded
    • 1 cup red cabbage, shredded
    • 2 small carrots, shredded
    • 1 cup cooked black beans (if using canned beans rinse well and drain)
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (*fresh* only!)
    • 1 medium tomato, seeded and diced
    • 1/2 medium red onion, diced small
    • 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced (for less heat use a milder variety of chili or green bell pepper)

    Dressing

    • 1 avocado (pitted, peeled and sliced or diced)
    • 3 tablespoons pepitas, toasted (optional)

    Directions:

    3. 3
      Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for a few hours until chilled.
    4. 4
      When ready to serve, slice up the avocados, drizzle with some lime juice to stop the avocado from browning and arrange on top of the coleslaw.

    6. 6
      Yield 8 (1 cup) servings.

      This was delicious, Cookgirl. I served it with Roast Chicken With Cilantro Pesto and Vegetables, and it was a great side dish. I loved the refreshing touch that the lime juice, cilantro and tomatoes gave to this great dish. I didn't make any alterations (except my local market didn't have red cabbage so I had to use all green cabbage), but next time I would be inclined to double the dressing because it really is what gives this coleslaw a Southwestern flair...so why not more, I say. I'm so happy I made this recipe for the ongoing Spain & Portugal tag game.

      Great tasting coleslaw, I made half the batch and that was plenty for a BBQ side dish. I think you need all the parts to really make this work, right down to the chipotle powder and pumpkin seeds, which ended up being my favourite part. I happened to have a fresh ear of corn going spare so I cut off the kernels and added them in too. I used a bag of shredded cabbage & carrot, which made this really quick to put together. The only thing I found is that I needed to make extra dressing, half the batch of dressing on half the coleslaw didn't go that far.
