Cabbage, Lime and Jalapeno Slaw
Approximately 10 portions, 1/2 cup each
This recipe combines all the great food experiences. It has the creaminess of the sour cream, the tang of fresh lime juice and lime zest, and the heat of the jalapeno. And you can pump the heat up by using a habanero instead of jalapeno, or adding Sriracha for another layer of flavor. It is a perfect paring with seafood, especially a meaty fish like tuna, or with smoky BBQed pork ribs, or a battered and fried chicken. Such delicious foods, such a versatile side dish!
½ cup sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt)
2 tablespoon mayo
The juice of one lime
The zest of one lime
1 bag of pre-shredded cabbage (9-12 ounces by weight)
1-2 fresh jalapeno, minced
4-6 green onions, sliced, white and green parts
Salt and pepper to taste
- Mix together first four ingredients
