A little bit of spice, cilantro, fresh slaw, and a touch of sweetness makes this Mexican Coleslaw Salad a perfect side salad for your next Mexican meal.
We were having friends over for a Mexican bar style dinner. I had the usual taco fixings, rice, and Carolina Mud Spicy Bean Dip. I wanted a side dish that went along with the theme that was fresh and flavorful. That is when I came up with the idea of kicking a little Mexican into my coleslaw recipe by adding cumin, some heat, and cilantro.
It was easy and quick to prepare and I was able to do it several hours before company arrived. The salad was a hit with everyone.
