Jalapeno-Lime Slaw

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.


Jalapeno-Lime Slaw

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.
