Jen's Mexican Style Cole Slaw

Here is my cole slaw recipe. It is loosly based on Beth's Broccoli Slaw dressing, but I added cilantro,red onion, and lemon/lime juices to give it more of a Mexican feel. I wanted the flavors to be better suited for tacos, rather than a traditional American picnic slaw...but it could easily be adjusted to be a regular cole slaw recipe.

Jen's Mexican Style Cole Slaw

½ head of green cabbage, shredded
1-2 shredded carrots
½ of a large red onion, shredded
½ cup of chopped cilantro

¾ cup of mayo
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of lime juice
1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of white sugar

Combine slaw ingredients in bowl and gently combine thoroughly, without breaking apart. In a separate bowl, combine all dressing ingredients and stir until smooth with a wire whisk. Pour dressing over slaw and gently fold mixture to combine.
