Honey Lime Slaw with Cilantro and Sriracha



   Normally I am a creamy coleslaw kind of gal.  But this was worth stepping outside of my comfort zone. It is bright and fresh and delicious!  It has a nice blend of sweet and sour, balanced with a little heat.  It has a nice rounded flavor that will knock your socks off.




    It is great as a simple and fresh side dish, but it is even better on Asian inspired tacos.  We put it on our Slow Cooker Honey Sriracha Chicken Tacos and the two are amazing together.  You have to give it a try!



Honey Lime Slaw with Cilantro and Sriracha

Ingredients:

2 T lime juice
1 T white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp cumin
2 T honey
1/2 tsp sriracha
1 tsp salt
3 T vegetable oil
1 lb bag of tri-color coleslaw
1 cup chopped cilantro

  1. Mix together lime juice, vinegar, cumin, honey, sriracha, salt and oil.
  2. Stir in cole slaw and chill for at least an hour, preferably a couple stirring occasionally. 
  3. Mix slaw to redistribute the dressing, then toss in the cilantro
  4. Serve ;-)

  2. Hello Carlee, this coleslaw looks so yummy! My hubby hates cilantro, so I would make this and leave it out. Thanks for the awesome recipe. :)
    I hope you have a wonderful week and a happy 4th of July.

    1. It's funny how cilantro is something people either love or hate! My mom was a hater, so we never had it growing up. I think she has at least come around to tolerating it lately. Have a wonderful 4th!

  4. Oh my gosh, I don't know how I missed that slow cooker recipe last year! Chicken tacos are my jam :-) Especially when you can make them in the slow cooker. I bet this slaw would be delicious on those tacos. I'm definitely going to try the taco and the slaw recipe!

  7. Carlee, this sounds so good! We love an Asian slaw on fish tacos, but this would be a great way to switch it up! I love the ingredients, lime for freshness and the sriracha for a bit of heat! This is going on our summer menu. I bet it would be really good with shrimp kabobs too! Yummy!
