This Jalapeno-Lime Slaw is so fresh, clean and offers a little more zip than your classic coleslaw. Simple flavors that really come through. Control the heat by how much of the chili you use. You can also use a serrano pepper, too. Some things are just better in their simplicity. So delicious!
Print Recipe


  • 4 cups green cabbage finely shredded
  • 1 tbsp salt plus more to taste
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 fresh jalapeno cored, seeded and ribs removed, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp cilantro chopped


  • Put the cabbage in a colander set over a bowl or in the sink, toss with the salt, and let sit for 20 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the lime juice, oil, pepper, and cilantro.
  • Gently squeeze the cabbage to remove any excess moisture.
  • Still with the cabbage in the colander, run cold water over it, tossing it a bit to remove excess salt.
  • Add the cabbage to the dressing and toss to coat. Taste and add a pinch of salt, if needed.
  • Let sit at least 30 minutes (and up to 1 day) before serving.
