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
  • 1 lime
  • salt and pepper

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)

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.

Thai Turkey Burgers with Spicy Sriracha Slaw

I am all about these thai turkey burgers right now! The dish takes a quick 30 minutes to put together but is full of exotic flavors to make a weeknight meal special. You can enjoy the last of the summer weather we are having and take this outside to prepare on the grill or savor this dish all year long and make on the grill pan inside. The burgers are flavorful and moist and a great low carb dinner!

Thai Turkey Burgers and Slaw

We wanted to keep the accompanying slaw simple so we prepared this using a pre-shredded broccoli and carrot slaw mix, but if you don’t have this readily available go ahead and shred some using a food processor or a box grater. The mangos REALLY make this side dish stand out but just make sure to use a perfectly ripe one so it adds the right amount of sweetness.

Thai Turkey Burgers and Slaw

You can serve them as lettuce wrapped burgers for the perfect low carb dinner that satisfies!

Or make it into a low carb burger bowl with the slaw, cauliflower rice, avocado, red onion, and ribboned cucumber drizzled with a little extra sriracha. PERFECT!

Beet Slaw

This beet slaw is a tangy and sweet side dish, with all of those farm fresh beets, scallions, and fresh mint! It pairs perfectly with grilled chicken or salmon, or as an addition to any leafy green salad.

Beet Slaw

Confession: I haven’t always been a huge beet fan.

Lately though with all the beets from the CSA, and experimenting with my new juicer (beet juice is delicious), I’ve taken more of a liking to them! I wanted to throw these beets grated into some sort of a salad. It just seems more appealing grated to me. This slaw came about, since you know I love slaws, and it is packed with the most fabulous flavors.

My garden is bursting with fresh mint, and my CSA is giving me TONS of beets and scallions. I’m throwing all of my favorite flavors together to make a farmer’s market slaw that everybody will love. It comes together quickly for any BBQ or weekend lunch or dinner.

    Crispy Chicken Tacos with Special Sauce

    You guys, I am ALL OVER these Crispy Chicken Tacos.

    Let’s chat about why…

    For starters, since I tried Sir Kensington’s Special Sauce last month I was hooked (and so was Mike). The jar was gone so fast. Burgers, chicken, fish– you name it, we slathered it on.

    It’s seriously so good.

    Then the obvious:

    Crispy chicken + special slaw + mango + homemade grain-free tortillas = the most insane combination ever.

    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.
