avocado & lime coleslaw

Quesadillas were originally on the menu for dinner, but I needed a vegetable side dish to go along with them. So I spent my yoga class dreaming up a Mexican-inspired coleslaw. My mind is supposed to be clear and focused on yoga and I’m thinking about food. Shocking, isn’t it?

Maybe it was the clear yoga mind, or maybe not, but regardless, this dressing was creamy, bright and full of lime flavor. Perfectly refreshing after non-focused hot yoga. We served it alongside quesadillas but it would be amazing as a topping for fish tacos or nachos.

Avocado & Lime Coleslaw

  • 4 cups chinese cabbage, shredded
  • 2 Tbsp red onion, minced (if desired)
  • 1 cup + 1 Tbsp. cilantro
  • 1/2 avocado
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • water to thin dressing as needed
  • salt, pepper

Combine cabbage, red onion and 1 Tbsp of minced cilantro. Set aside.

Combine remaining ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Add water as needed. Toss with cabbage mixture with dressing and let refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

    I have been on a slaw kick lately. It must be the warmer weather. I love it and the dressing on this sounds great. I recently found a recipe for another salad dressing with avocado and I’m really interested in trying it now.
