Tangy Cilantro Jalapeno Lime Coleslaw

Monday, February 27, 2012

I just remade this the other night with Easy Crock-pot Pulled Chicken Sandwiches With Homemade BBQ Sauce and thought I would update the picture! This is defiantly a favorite in our house! Tangy-Cilantro-Jalapeno-Lime-Coleslaw.jpgThis was the perfect condiment to go with Pulled Pork Sandwiches we had company over and had the pulled pork topped with the coleslaw and it was a wonderful flavor combination. I usually make a standard coleslaw but I wanted something with a bit more pop and  to cut the calories down from my original all mayo recipe I had made for years. This isn't super sweet so if that is what you are looking for this recipe might not be for you. I found the tangy combination was perfect to top the pulled pork sandwiches and hold it's flavor so you could taste both the pork and the coleslaw. I was actually rather sad I never was able to take a picture of the pulled pork topped with the coleslaw because the coleslaw was gone by the end of dinner ( and I was worried we would have too much coleslaw). I should have made more since we then just had left over pulled pork with no coleslaw which was still divine.

On another note I must say it was fun to have our friends over and they had brought a super tasty smoked salmon pate on top of a sliced cucumber..All I can say is yum.. I wish I still had some to take a picture just so you could see how delish these where!Tangy-Cilantro-Jalapeno-Lime-Coleslaw-Veggies-Greek-Yogurt-Mayonnaise-Jalapeno-Lime-Juice-Salt-Garlic-Powder-Sugar.jpg
Ok, well there is only 1 picture this time. 

I forgot to take the other picture in the step by step since I was multi tasking at this moment! But the recipe is easy. Mix all the veggies together and in a separate bowl mix greek yogurt, mayonnaise, jalapeno, lime juice, salt, garlic powder and sugar. Add the dressing to the coleslaw mix, stir well and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.
