Chipotle Slaw

I’m really feeling the warm weather this week here in Boston. It felt like this Winter was extra long this year, so the new warmth has me in the best mood. We officially set up the backyard, the chairs and hammock are out, the BBQ is ready in full-force, and nighttime walks with pup are back in action. 

Along with all things Spring, my side dishes are switching up to my favorite light dishes that require no cooking! Today for Healthy Food Friday with American Express let’s talk about my favorite slaw. It is perfect as a BBQ side, a taco topping, or just plain! Add some shredded chicken to make it a protein-packed bite.

    • Hi Lexi:

      I love chipotle. I am originally from Mexico although I am living in Canada (Vancouver BC). Before I moved to Vancouver I made sure I could find chipotle in the stores there, (LOL).

      Now, I couldn´t find the chipotle in your Chipotle Slaw recipe. Oops! Maybe is in the mayo.

      Ok, answering to your question about a no-cooking side dish?

      This is a very very simple one, but I love it especially when is warm or hot out, since it is so refreshing.
      Cucumber with lime and chile piquin (powder). You can use instead of cucumber or besides it carrots and/or jicama.

      This was a great recipe. I used the broccoli slaw instead of yellow squash, cabbage, zucchini, and carrot. I also added some lime juice. I couldn’t find the chipotle spice so used the Cholula Chipotle hot sauce and it worked just fine. Also, added the chicken and marinated it in the same spices. Was great and my boyfriend was shocked to find that I used broccoli slaw! He doesn’t really like broccoli but ate this with enthusiasm. Thanks for the recipe.

    • I used your mayo and spice combo with a bag of vegetable slaw to have with sloppy joes. Perfect amount of spice and a nice change from my traditional coleslaw recipe
