Mexican Coleslaw

I’m not too sure how I have been making so many Mexican dishes but just enjoyed a few. This is a simple slaw I liked because I hate mayo based slaws so this was a treat. It went great with my quesadillas, Mexican meatloaf rings and sloppy joes over cornbread. I love this. It is quick and easy. You can easy cut this in half if you want. But it last for a couple of days. This is amazing over grilled chicken brest sandwiches or over BBQ hoagies. Amazing. Or just as a side. For a family of four it goes quick.


  1. 1Add the first eight ingredients to a bowl (nine if you are adding mango). Trust me take advantage of pre diced onions or celery I do at times. Not always, but we all need shortcuts now and then. Mix all the veggies and beans well.
  2. 2Make the dressing. I just make mine in a ziplock bag, add everything seal and shake … how easy. Pour over the slaw and toss well. I add the cilantro and lime at the end and toss.
  3. 3Serve with anything … not just Mexican. Love it with my Sloppy Joes or my Mexican Meatloaf tings. A great side even for BBQ chicken.
