Honey Lime Cilantro Slaw

Photo courtesy of the Cooking Corner.
     Over the years I've discovered a variety of types of slaw. None seem to have the bright flavor punch of this slaw. The cilantro adds a bright taste that is enhanced by the lime juice in the dressing. It's balanced out nicely with a touch of honey.
    This particular slaw pairs very well with fish or crab tacos. We had this combination in a restaurant once so this is how I redid it at home.

Honey Lime Cilantro Slaw
1/2 bag slaw mix
1-1/2 T. lime juice
1-1/2 T. olive oil
1 tsp. honey
3/4 cup cilantro
1/2 tsp. kosher slat
1/4 tsp black cracked pepper
1/8 cup onion, diced (optional)
1/4 tsp. cayenne (optional)

In medium bowl, empty half the bag of slaw mix, add onions if using.

In small bowl, make dressing by combining all remaining ingredients except cilantro.

Pour dressing over slaw mix, adding additional salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Add cilantro and mix well.

Chill for an hour or so to combine flavors.

Serves 4.

Cilantro slaw pairs well with crab or fish tacos.
