I'm gonna be honest with you.

I'm not a huge fan of traditional coleslaw recipes, but I absolutely love cabbage. 

I decided to try this variation of coleslaw for something new and I absolutely loved it! 

The flavors are so fresh, and it's alot healthier than mayo based coleslaw recipes. Plus, it's super quick to make when using bagged coleslaw mix!

Mexican and southwest inspired foods are also a favorite of mine, so this was right up my alley! 

It's also great in wraps for a quick weekday lunch and you could even add some crushed Doritos for an even bigger crunch.

I would definitely serve it with my next Mexican themed meal. Enjoy!
