One of the blogs I follow is Kelly’s Korner. She’s such a sweet Southern momma of 3 precious kids. Once upon a time ago, she has started a Friday series called “Show Us Your Life”, where people can share recipes, get decorating tips, and even play matchmaker! I find that I am constantly trying to figure out what to serve with our main dishes and I’ve come across a recipe recently that has become one of my summer favorites! It’s a Spicy Coleslaw – now I’m not typically a coleslaw person AT ALL, but this recipe has turned me into a huge fan. It has a lime vinaigrette base instead of a typical mayonnaise base. It’s perfect for those summer barbeques or even an accompaniment to a sandwich/burger/brat/hot dog. Give it a try!

Dressing Ingredients:
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 clove minced garlic
Few dashes of hot sauce (I use Tobasco)
1/2 cup olive oil

Whisk all ingredients together until smooth or place in a blender if desired.

Slaw Ingredients:

  • NOTE: You can very easily use a pre-packaged coleslaw mix if you want.

3 carrots, peeled and shredded
1 medium head green cabbage
shredded
1 small head green cabbage
shredded 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (I didn’t have any on hand last night)
Salt and pepper

Optional: You can pretty much add anything else to the slaw that sounds good. I’ve added julienned bell peppers and onions before and it was good. As I said, it’s optional.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, toss with the dressing, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Enjoy!
