Cilantro Lime Slaw

about the recipe

Cilantro Lime Slaw is a jazzed-up take on coleslaw that will leave your taste buds doing a happy dance. You are going to love the spicy lime dressing in this crave-worthy slaw. It is the perfect side to any meal with a Mexican or Southwestern flair. I especially like this recipe served with Blackstone fajitas or grilled chipotle chicken.
