I’m obsessed with this spicy coleslaw! I have it as a side dish with burgers or steak and it’s amazing as the base for fish tacos (I usually choose to go without tortillas).

Spicy Coleslaw

For the slaw:

  • 1 head of green cabbage, finely chopped or sliced with a mandolin
  • 1 head of red cabbage, finely chopped or sliced with a mandolin
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped (omit if you want it less spicy)
  • 3 large scallions (green onions) finely chopped

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 cup Primal Kitchen Chipotle Lime Mayo*
  • 1/2 cup Primal Kitchen Turmeric Lemon salad dressing*
  • 1.5 tbsp hot sauce of your choice (omit if you want it less spicy)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice of one lime

In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, green onion and jalapeno. In a separate bowl, mix the dressing ingredients and pour over salad. Mix well. For best results, let the coleslaw sit for a few hours before serving to allow flavors to develop. You can add salt to taste, but since the mayo and dressing have seasoning, I didn’t feel that any salt was needed.

The first night I made this I added steak. The second night, I added white fish, like deconstructed tacos. This is absolutely going to be a new summer staple for me! I’m excited for leftovers!
