Mexican Coleslaw

A* is making Chili Con Carne with Nachos and Guacamole. I'm supposed to make the side dish. My guess is that lime, coriander and red onions are a good place to start. Maybe I'll make a salad.

And... we don't have lettuce. But we have a Siena Farms share coming today so there might be something, but they sometimes show up right at dinner time. Maybe I'll do a Mexican cole slaw as a backup recipe since I recall seeing a bit of cabbage in the fridge.

My Mexican Coleslaw came out great. I followed this Mexican Coleslaw with Cilantro Lime Dressing recipeMexican Coleslaw with Cilantro Lime Dressing
4 cups shredded cabbage mix, I like a mix with red and green cabbage and shredded carrots (you could also use some broccoli slaw)
1 red pepper, medium sized
½ cup chopped cilantro
½ cup chopped red onion
½ cup red wine vinegar or vinegar of choice
¼ cup olive oil, or veggie broth for oil free
2 Tbsp lime juice about one lime
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Extra veggie broth to thin out dressing if needed , I used 1/4 cup
and the only thing missing was bell peppers.
