Mexican Style Coleslaw

Mexican Style Coleslaw

This dish is so light and refreshing, but also packed FULL of flavor and nutrients! It works as the perfect lunch, side dish, topping, taco addition, you name it!

3.5 / 4 cup tri-colored coleslaw mix

1/4 cup cilantro, finely diced

1 cup corn 

1 cup black beans 

1/2 cup red onion, diced 

1.5 tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup Mayo 

1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 lime squeezed 

Seasonings: 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp chili powder, & 1/4 tsp salt 

OR option to just do 1 teaspoon of taco mix

1 tbsp mustard 

Optional: 1 tbsp agave (I didn’t do it but I like a tang)

The recipe:

Prep your veggies by rinsing and patting dry (so the coleslaw doesn’t become soggy), dice your onion and finely chop your cilantro.

To make the dressing, in a separate bowl, combine your mayo, apple cider vinegar, squeezed lime, mustard along with your seasonings. Stir well to combine!

Mix your veggies in a bigger bowl (corn, diced red onion, black beans, coleslaw mix, and chopped cilantro), then add in your dressing. I like to do a little bit at a time so that you don’t drown the veggies in too much dressing! This lets you get the PERFECT ratio of dressing to veggies!!

Use as a side dish, topping or whatever you’d like! Enjoy!! xx
