Cilantro-Lime Coleslaw

Inspired by the Salad Dressing Competition we're currently hosting, I decided to adapt this awesome-sounding lime dressing from Eating Well and toss it with freshly shredded cabbage for a cool, crisp, non-creamy version of coleslaw. The result was light and fresh and will be right at home at my next barbeque.

  • 1 head green cabbage, very thinly sliced
  • 6 scallions, sliced
  • 1 large bunch cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup Lime Olive Oil
  • Juice of 3 fresh limes
  • Juice of 1 fresh orange
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Place cabbage and scallions in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Puree remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  3. Toss dressing with cabbage. Serve alongside burgers, sandwiches, or on its own.

Serves: 4-6
