3-Ingredient Taco Slaw

5 from 1 reviews

This 3-ingredient cabbage slaw for tacos is the easiest addition to a quick and delicious taco night. Made in minutes with cabbage, mayo (or Greek yogurt) and lime, it adds a nice creamy acidity to your favorite taco (or non-taco) dish. Serve with chicken, fish, or carnitas (or really anything) and you’ll be happy you did!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 medium green cabbage,  shredded (about 8 cups)
  • 1/3 cup mayo or greek yogurt, more as needed
  •  2 tablespoons lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, more as desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, more as desired

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss well to combine.
  2. Serve with your favorite taco meat, like this chicken taco!

Notes

Ideally you make it at least an hour before serving, as it sits it will break down the cabbage. Can be made up to 6 hours ahead of time, kept in the refrigerator.

Don’t need 6 servings? Halve the recipe and only use half a head of cabbage with a scant 1/4 cup mayo, 1 tablespoon lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
