Great topping for tacos--also a nice side dish for any type of Mexican or Tex-Mex entree! Hint: The measurements are approximate- I usually make this without any. You can use green or purple cabbage, or a combination of the two. Same goes for green or red bell peppers. For extra heat, use an additional jalapeno pepper.

This recipe is absolutely refreshing, crunchy and just plain delicious. Although, I mix shredded cabbage with a bag of broccoli slaw. This gives it an extra bit of crunch.

Excellent side dish with my mexican main dishes. My family does not like cilantro so I added Schillings mexican seasoning which was excellent.

If you follow the recipe - I'd say 3 stars. The initial recipe is a good start, but I thought it was bland. It was spicy, but lacked taste. I added more vinegar (didn't measure, probably ~3-4T), cumin (~2T), and the rest of the package of cilantro (I ended up using a whole package from the store), and 2 cloves of garlic. Finally I substituted olive oil (that I had sitting for about a month or so with red peppers and seeds in it). Overall, it turned out excellent, everyone liked it. I think adding cumin makes a big difference in making this a southwest-like slaw.
