Cilantro-Lime & Tequila Slaw

Grab a bag of packaged coleslaw mix, and you've saved yourself the time of slicing cabbage and shredding carrots. A splash of tequila adds spirit and complexity (I urge you not to leave it out), while lime juice's zing perks up earthy cabbage. Serve on tacos, alongside barbecue chicken, with grilled flank or skirt steak, or with (or on) burgers.

Serves 6 (serving size: about 2/3 cup)        Total time: 5 Minutes

1/4 cup canola mayonnaise (such as Hellmann's)
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice 
1 tablespoon silver tequila
2 teaspoons sugar 
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions 
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 (14-ounce) package coleslaw
Try Fluffy Three Pepper Sausage Corn Cakes

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients; toss.


  1. Good morning Nee,
    This looks amazing even at this time of the morning. What a delicious side dish this one is. I agree sometimes you just don't have the time to slice your cabbage, so a pre-sliced bag of slaw is a great time saver. Love the ingredients and like the extra zip with the Tequila added. Even thought it is a small amount it must really have that flavor...Thanks for sharing..Have a wonderful day!

    1. Good evening Dottie ,
      This past month , my time was limited , took a lot of shortcuts . It's made the same as my regular slaw , my big sister always used Teguila and we would always try to figure out what it was (giggling) Tequila gives it the zip . Thanks for stopping by . Have a wonderful and safe day :) Nee

  2. Good day Nee, gosh, this slaw sounds excellence. Wish I can have some right away.
    Hope you're having a wonderful week ahead dear.
    Blessings, Kristy
