Default Spicy Cilantro Lime Slaw

Here I go with another tangy slaw, this one has more bite than my [email protected]$$ Coleslaw.
Not quite as creamy either as I really want the cilantro to stand out.
And a healthy addition of fresh Jalapeno chile adds a distinct spicy kick.
Great as a side dish or stand alone salad, very refreshing light lunch on a hot day.

Spicy Cilantro Lime Slaw

In a large bowl mix the following
1lb of bagged slaw mix (yeah I cheated)
1 bunch of green onion, greens and all chopped very thin
1/2 of a large Jalapeno chile, quartered and chopped very thin
1 bunch of Cilantro, chopped coarse
The zest of of 1 lime
The juice of 2 limes



In a medium bowl mix the following
3/4C Sour Cream
1/2C Mayonnaise
2T sugar
1t cayenne pepper



Combine the two, mixing well



Add kosher salt to taste, add more sugar if you want it sweeter
Refrigerate overnight to let the flavors meld
Paymaster and smooth move like this.

Family had this today with lunch, everyone liked it.

It was very good after over nighting in the fridge, and even spicier.
Next time I will use 3T of sugar, as it could stand a little more sweetness.

And I forgot to add...
If you're making this and plan on keeping it more than two days, you'll need to cut the cilantro by a third to half or it gets really pungent and a bit bitter. Once again, upping the sugar may help with that.


So adjust the recipe


In a large bowl mix the following
1lb of bagged slaw mix (yeah I cheated)
1 bunch of green onion, greens and all chopped very thin
1/2 of a large Jalapeno chile, quartered and chopped very thin
1/2-2/3 bunch of Cilantro, chopped coarse
The zest of of 1 lime
The juice of 2 limes


In a medium bowl mix the following
3/4C Sour Cream
1/2C Mayonnaise
3T sugar
1t cayenne pepper
