Southwest Chicken Coleslaw Recipe
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. Mexican and southwest inspired foods are also a favorite of mine, so this was right up my alley! I would definitely serve it with my next Mexican themed meal. Enjoy!
