This Mexican Coleslaw is a perfect side for your favorite Mexican dishes, or your burgers and sandwiches. We actually like this easy chipotle coleslaw dressing so much, we put it on everything!
- 4 cups shredded cabbage green,, red, and/or savoy
- 1 cup shredded carrot
- ¼ cup raw walnuts
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- ½ cup water
- ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon chipotle powder
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- dash black pepper
Shred the cabbage and grate the carrot, and place the vegetables in a medium bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients to a blender, and blend until smooth.
Pour the dressing over the cabbage, and stir together until well combined.
Use as little or as much chipotle powder as you wish. Start with 1/4 teaspoon and add more until the flavor is to your liking.
If you want to make this recipe ahead of time, store the dressing and the vegetables separately and mix them together shortly before serving. Once they are mixed together, the leftovers will keep for a couple of days, but the cabbage will become wilted.
