Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Taste the dressing before adding the vegetables; tweak dressing ingredient amounts if desired, based on what you're serving with the slaw. For Asian wonton tacos, for instance, I add more sweet chili sauce and rice vinegar. For fish tacos, I usually add more lime rind and juice. Sometimes I supplement some of the mayo with sour cream. You can use chopped green chili in place of the sweet chili sauce. If you choose to do this, double the amount of sugar. The lime rind is not essential. You can omit it if you only have bottled lime juice on hand.

So awesome! Two of my favorites: cilantro and lime. I tried to be cute and measure out the ingredients, but why bother; this recipe is fool proof. I omitted the chili sauce, and added some grated carrot. Oh! I also used the "juice" from a jar of pickled jalapenos in place of the rice vinegar and served the jalapenos on the side. I just served it with some fried pork chops this time, but I bet this would be AWESOME on a pulled pork sandwich. :-) Thanks for posting!

Perfect - just what I was looking for. :) However, I used plain yogurt instead of mayo, and did not have chili sauce. The flavor is even better the second day, so if you can, make the dressing ahead of time. The veggies get too soggy if you make the whole thing a day ahead.

Made this and took half batches to 2 different get togethers. Everyone loved it! The cilantro and lime were a happy change to a normal mayo coleslaw.
