How to Make Honey Lime Salad Dressing

The name of the game for this dressing is EASY! Just mix up all of the ingredients in a bowl and add to your cut up fruit.

Here are the ingredients:

  • Honey
  • Lime 
  • Chia seeds

What other fruit can be added?

Most fruit would work well in this salad! You can change it out for whatever is in season or what is available for you. However, leave out banana as it gets brown very quickly and can turn mushy.

    Easiest taco slaw in a bowlEasy Cabbage Taco Slaw Recipe

    If you didn’t notice already, taco week is in full swing here at LCK coming at you with delicious taco bar party ideas like these meatless chipotle mushroom tacos, the most delicious 7 layer taco dip or the easiest and most delicious 15-minute chicken tacos. This easy 3-ingredient cabbage taco slaw could pair with just about anything, but I’m really loving it with the chicken tacos.

    It literally takes less than 10 minutes, and can be made ahead of time up to 6 hours. The hardest part is slicing the cabbage, and that isn’t very hard! Toss with the remaining 2 ingredients and you’re good to add a nice punch of creaminess and acidity to any taco dish!

    Here’s what you need to make it:

    • 1 medium green cabbage
    • mayo or greek yogurt

    Easy 3-Ingredient Cabbage Slaw

    Prep Time 00:10 Total Time 00:10 Serves 6

    Ingredients

    • 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

    Directions

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

    Recipe Notes

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
