Cilantro Lime Slaw

Cilantro Lime Slaw

I served this as a side dish for fish tacos.  I usually shred 1/4 of a head of red cabbage for a taco topping, and then find something to make with the other 3/4 of the cabbage.  This is the perfect side item to use up the leftovers.  Jeremy, who doesn't like cole slaw, actually loved this stuff and ended up topping his fish tacos with the slaw instead of the plain cabbage, so this might need to be our regular accompaniment for fish tacos now.  You could substitute green cabbage for the red, do half and half, or use a bagged cole slaw mix

-1/4 c light sour cream
-1/4 c light mayo
-1 Tbsp lime juice
-1 Tbsp white vinegar
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp pepper
-1/2 tsp cumin
-1/4 tsp cayenne
-2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
-3/4 head red cabbage, shredded
-2 carrots, shredded

Whisk together the sour cream through cayenne.  Toss with cilantro, carrot, and cabbage.  Chill at least 2 hours prior to serving.
