Red Cabbage Slaw

Red cabbage slaw is tangy, savory, sweet, and crunchy. This slaw marries well with tacos, grilled salmon, black bean quinoa burgers, shrimp crab cakes, pulled pork, and is delicious as a fresh side salad too. The vibrant color of the red cabbage against the green cilantro are beautiful. The tangy zest of the lime and a touch of sweetness from the honey adds a delicious depth of flavor. I love the crunch the slaw gives a great sandwich the most.

This red cabbage slaw only takes minutes to whip up and it is healthy too. It is the perfect recipe. You can different change up the ingredients for a more vibrant dish. Adding carrots and jalapeno peppers for a hint of sweetness and kick. If you don't like cilantro substitute it with fresh parsley or mint. Instead of honey switch it out for maple syrup. You can also use mayonnaise instead of olive oil.

Quick Tips

After shredding the cabbage add 3 tablespoons of vinegar to the cabbage to stop the cabbage from bleeding into the slaw. Also store the cabbage in a zip lock bag to store in the fridge to keep it from bleeding on other vegetables. If stored in an airtight container red cabbage slaw will keep up to 3 days and prepared in advance up to a day.
