Cilantro Slaw and Dressing

This recipe makes a great topping for tacos or can be a tasty side dish.

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 2 scallions sliced
  • 1 clove garlic sliced or grated
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper

Add 1/4 cup of cilantro, scallions, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, and sour cream to a small food processor. Process until fully combined, season with salt and pepper to taste. (You can optionally add 1/2 of a fresh diced jalapeno to this dressing if you would like it to be spicy.)

Add the 3 tablespoons of the dressing to the cabbage and cilantro and mix well. This ratio will work well for a taco topping. If you are serving it as a side dish you can add more dressing, as desired.

Serve the additional dressing on the side, as it also makes a tasty sauce for tacos.
