South Western Slaw

To tie to the south western theme, Frances and Paul made a South Western Slaw for side dish at the South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors.


This South Western Slaw is very refreshing contrast to the regular creamy coleslaw.

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • salt to taste

optional add-ins:

  • 1/2 jalapeno, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
