Cilantro Coleslaw

John and I were watching a cooking show this week and one of the sides made was a cilantro, John has a bit of an obsession with cilantro and I happen to love coleslaw. If I make it to the grocery store today, I will be adding this to our dinner menu!

Cilantro and Lime Coleslaw


  • 1 head Savoy cabbage
  • 4 scallions
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, torn
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 limes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


Shave the cabbage with a sharp knife or mandoline so you have thin ribbons. Cut the scallions long and on the bias so you have pieces similar in shape to the cabbage. Toss the cabbage, scallions and cilantro in a large salad bowl.
Make the dressing by combining the sour creammayonnaise, sugar and the zest of the limes in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper and finish with a squeeze of lime juice. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss to combine.
