Jalapeno Cole Slaw

Cole slaw. Sends shivers up your spine, no? This is nothing like those creamy, sickeningly sweet, mayo-laden cole slaws of your youth. Crunchy and light with just a hint of spice, this slaw is the perfect taco topper or side to serve at your next fiesta.

2 bags mixed cabbage or 1 head green cabbage, sliced thinly
1 lime
1/2 jalapeno, seeds and membrane removed
1/2 small red onion OR 1/2 bunch scallions
1/2 c cilantro
2 Tbsp canola oil

Put the cabbage in a large bowl. Zest and juice the lime into the bowl. Mince the jalapeno and add to bowl. Finely dice the onion or thinly slice the scallions. Chop up the cilantro. Drizzle with oil. Add s&p to taste. Toss a few times to combine. Done! That was quick and painless, wasn't it?
