This cilantro lime slaw is a great side dish for summer, or a fantastic topping for beachy meals such as Grilled Fish Tacos, or something like a jerk-seasoned chicken. It’s super easy to make and tastes best with fresh shredded cabbage (although for convenience, you can use the equivalent of already bagged and shredded cabbage.) The fresh cilantro and lime juice really make the flavors pop, and the crunch adds nice texture!

Yummy meals like these are a staple in my path to healthy living. Contact Truce today for a complimentary session and start calling your own self-truce!
