Lime Cilantro Slaw

serves 10

Leave the mayo behind and add a twist of lime to your coleslaw this year. Cilantro is a good partner for the lime, but you can use any delicate herb of your choice.

½ lb. cabbage, shredded or sliced thin
2–3 carrots, shaved or sliced thin
½ onion or shallot, sliced thin
2 tsp. salt
¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
Handful of cilantro, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine vegetables in a colander; massage with salt, let sit 20 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl. Mix lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Add dressing just before serving with dishes like pulled pork or chickpea patties
