Helpful hints

  • Look for a package of coleslaw mix with shredded cabbage and carrots.

Mexican Coleslaw

I really like this recipe and I do not have CKD (I made it for someone who does). Goes great with pork roast!

I made a few tweaks but stuck with the basic recipe. First, I eliminated the mayo altogether. Next, I increased the sugar to 1/4 cup, the olive oil to 1/4 cup, and the vinegar to 1/4 cup. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper for just a little extra kick and whirled it up in a food processor. Make a day ahead if possible to let the oil dressing permeate the cabbage. Tasty!

Very easy - and a different kind of taste. I prepared it with pineapple juice and no cumin. Have used it on other types of slaw, too.
