The first recipe is a Creamy Cilantro Lime Slaw. For this slaw recipe, Michelle used purple cabbage because it has more nutritional value than green cabbage. Although it’s a creamy dressing, the tanginess of the lime juice makes this salad very refreshing.

Ingredients

  • 1 small head purple cabbage, shredded
  • 1 heaping teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large handful cilantro, chopped
  • 3 to 4 large scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 large jalapeno, stem and seeds removed, minced (optional)
  • 1/2 cup honey Greek yogurt (we substituted with plain yogurt with added honey)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from one large lime)
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest (from that same lime)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • pepper to taste

Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes to allow the cabbage to get mildly limp.In a small bowl, combine honey yogurt, mayonnaise, lime juice, lime zest, garlic and cumin.
