Southwestern Creamy Coleslaw

 

Ingredients:

 

 

  • 1 head green cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1/4 purple cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro roughly chopped
  • 1 ear of corn grilled and stripped
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 limes, zested and juiced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

 

Instructions:

 

  1. Cut the green and red cabbage using a sharp knife or mandolin to make thin ribbons.
  2. Place the cabbage into a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Allow to stand for 20 min. (This will extract excess water from the cabbage and keep your slaw from becoming too watery.)
  3. Pre-heat grill to medium to high heat.
  4. Grill the corn over med-high heat, allowing to char slightly. Remove from grill and strip corn from the cob using a sharp knife, then add to the cabbage.
  5. Slice the red onion very thinly and add to cabbage mixture along with the chopped cilantro.
  6. To make the dressing: mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar and the zest from one of the limes in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper and finish with a squeeze of lime juice.
  7. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss to combine.
  8. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  9. Enjoy!
