Spicy Cilantro-Lime Coleslaw

Aaaaand, I’m back to reality…

Our 10 day trip to the Carolinas was just lovely.  We spent time in Raleigh with friends, had a week in Kiawah and then ended our trip at Lake Murray just out side of Columbia, SC with family.  I adored all of the time spent with loved ones and experiencing the wonder of a summer vacation through the eyes of my kid.  Here is my favorite video from our trip…

Today was my first day back at school, thankfully I am easing into it with several professional development days.  Nonetheless, it was heartbreaking to get back to the grind and not have the whole day with Connor!

Anyway, back to the food!  That is what you are all here for anyway, right?!  I made this delicious slaw a couple weeks ago when I needed to use up some cabbage from my CSA.  It comes together super quickly and is a great accompaniment to so many different meals.  I loved it on top of tacos we made with some leftover chicken.  It was a great side for lunch with whatever I had laying around.  I think I’d love it atop a burger as well.
spicy cole slaw Now that I’m looking at this photo, I think I’m going to make it again this week!

you will need:
5 cups cabbage, thinly sliced
2 carrots, shredded
½ small red onion, thinly sliced
½ bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons buttermilk
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 limes, juiced
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 tablespoons hot sauce (I used Cholula)
salt and pepper to taste

In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, garlic, lime juice, spices and hot sauce and whisk to combine. Taste and add more lime or spice to your taste, you should get a nice punch of lime flavor so feel free to add more juice.

In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrot, onions and cilantro. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss to combine. Serve immediately.  Keeps well for up to 4 or 5 days.

serves: 6-8
time: 15 minutes
