Cumin and Lime Cole Slaw

 

Cumin and lime coleslaw is a fresh and flavorful way to make coleslaw that doesn’t taste heavy and makes a great topping to tacos, rice bowls or on its own.  The addition of cilantro, lime and cumin make it a perfect fresh flavor to add to your meals.  This recipe uses a little mayonnaise and sour cream but vegan friendly versions can easily be substituted and still taste great!  This recipe can be easily doubled for a larger group.

 

What I love about this recipe:

  • It requires no cooking
  • It is big on flavor 
  • It tastes great in so many dishes
