Slaws are often relegated to my sad side category; nothing terrible, yet nothing terribly exciting. As a slaw skeptic, my common BBQ practice is to bypass the slaw in favor of more enticing sides. Why waste coveted paper-plate space on a bowl of shredded cabbage when faced with juicy slices of watermelon or bacon potato salads?!? I recently, however, discovered this cilantro lime slaw and am reconsidering my classification of slaw as a sad side.
This cilantro lime slaw is not only a crunchy and refreshing condiment for pulled pork or fish tacos, it is an amazing side all on its own. I recently served this slaw as the perfect accompaniment for green chili cheeseburgers and a warm Mexican street corn salad, and then piled the leftovers on grilled fish tacos the following night.
Confession of a *wannabe* foodie…. Although this slaw has initiated my conversion, I still don’t love all slaws, but I will now at least give them a try!
