 Mexican Coleslaw

Coleslaw is great to have on hand in the kitchen. It works as a nice, fresh side dish (especially if members of your household object to salad!), and it’s also delicious tucked inside your favorite Mexican foods, like tacos and fajitas. This tasty coleslaw is deceptively simple; there are only a few ingredients, but it still has a complex, unique flavor.

Tip: If you’re having a really busy night, save some time by buying matchstick carrots and chopped cabbage. Pour on the dressing right before you serve it for the freshest taste!
