4 cups red cabbage, shaved thin
1 small red pepper, sliced thinly
½ cup cilantro, chopped
¼ cup onion, minced or thinly sliced (or sliced scallions)
1 cup mayonnaise (choose Sir Kensington's avocado mayonaise or make your own using avocado oil or olive oil)
3 Tbs cider vinegar
1 Tbs honey
2 tsp Southwest seasoning or to taste-see below
Fresh ground pepper
1. Combine the cabbage, peppers, and cilantro in a large bowl.
2. In a small bowl combine the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
3. Toss the cabbage mixture with ¾ to 1 cup of the dressing (save the rest for another salad). Season with fresh ground pepper and kosher salt as needed.
Makes ¼ cup
2 tablespoons smoked paprika-I get mine at Homegoods! You can use sweet paprika instead, but it will not have a smokey flavor-still delicious!
½ tsp chipotle power or ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder or granulated garlic
1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container.
Baja Chicken Tacos: Buy small corn or flour tortillas and a roasted chicken and shred the meat. Line the tortillas with Southwest coleslaw and top with shredded chicken. Substitute the chicken with broiled white fish to make fish tacos.
