I had planned on quesadillas for dinner but wanted a veggie side or salad to go along with them so I decided to make a Mexican-inspired coleslaw. I had the various ingredients that I might want to use but the end result came to me during yoga. Great, my mind is supposed to be clear and I’m thinking about food. Shocking, isn’t it?
Maybe it was the clear yoga mind, or maybe not, but regardless, this dressing was creamy, bright and full of lime flavor. Perfectly refreshing after non-focused hot yoga. We served it alongside quesadillas but it would be amazing as a topping for fish tacos or nachos.
Avocado & Lime Coleslaw
- 4 cups chinese cabbage, shredded
- 2 Tbsp red onion, minced (if desired)
- 1 cup + 1 Tbsp. cilantro
- 1/2 avocado
- juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
- water to thin dressing as needed
- salt, pepper
Combine cabbage, red onion and 1 Tbsp of minced cilantro. Set aside.
Combine remaining ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Add water as needed. Toss with cabbage mixture with dressing and let refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
