Light, creamy, and a little bit spicy, this quick Cilantro Slaw is terrific as a side dish or topping for tacos.

Heads up, friends, you’re going to want to check back here on Tuesday for a really great new taco recipe to pair with this slaw – both recipes are from Kelley Epstein‘s new cookbook, Apres All Day: 65+ Cozy Recipes to Share with Family and Friends.

This cilantro slaw was a perfect match for the Pineapple Chipotle Chicken Tacos that I’ll be sharing the recipe for next week.

We enjoyed this slaw first with the tacos and then enjoyed the leftover slaw with country ribs the next night.

Cilantro Lime Slaw

With a squeeze of lime and some fresh jalapeno added to the slaw along with a generous handful of cilantro, this is a coleslaw that doesn’t taste a bit like the average coleslaw.

You know how much we love southern-style coleslaw, but we also really like to mix our slaws up. The Jalapeno Corn Coleslaw was a new flavor combo for me a few years ago, you all have really loved it too.

Cranberry Apple Coleslaw is a sweet twist on the classic and this Cilantro Lime Coleslaw? It’s refreshing, light, and a great side dish for pretty much any meal.

    I love everything about this coleslaw … but is one garlic clove really enough? And is 1/4 c cilantro enough? Is there a place for buttermilk? I think it’ll be the pairing made in heaven for the Pineapple Chipotle Chicken Tacos. Maybe even for my Hawaiian Pizza Scramble (Spam with bacon, jalapeños, and pineapple, with or without cheese, in tortillas or sandwiches). I bet it’d be great with Cuban sandwiches, too. Its possibilities are endless!5 stars

      Feel free to bump up the garlic and cilantro amounts, Hollis. It will be delicious that way. I wouldn’t add buttermilk, as it’s going to add more liquid than I would want.
