My new best friend…. My new favorite slaw….. sorry honey! Your slaw is a favorite of the family, and others, but when I made this for the work eats yesterday, it has now become my favorite and has maybe converted a few of them.
Oh me…. make this….eat it by itself….serve it on a slider whether it is the Slow Cooker Mexican Pulled Pork, or a Smoked Butt, or a Beef Brisket sandwich, or a burger or a hot dog or a panini. The possibilities are endless! Just make it and eat it. Yes, it’s that good. By the way – I also like to add a little cumin in mine – it makes it oh so good – but you decide for yourself whether you do.
2 Tbsp lime zest (zest before juicing)
1 tsp sugar
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion (or you can chop if you like smaller bits)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
1 (16-ounce) package cabbage-and carrot coleslaw
4 jalapeno peppers, (de-seed three and chop, and keep seeds in one and chop – this keeps some heat but not too much- if you like more heat, do 2 and 2)
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add olive oil, stirring constantly with a whisk. Add onion, cilantro, and coleslaw. Add Jalapenos and toss well to coat. Cover and chill at least one hour before serving.
