Cilantro Lime Slaw

Ohh summer bridge learning with kids! It's been one of those weekends that has challenged my husband & I.  Our kids' summer routine includes reading for an hour a day and  completing 2 pages in a math workbook.  The reading part is easy & often times our kids read for longer than an hour. The math, not so much.  We hear things like "It's too hard"  or "We haven't learned this in school yet" or my favorite "It's summer, we shouldn't have to do school work".  Overcoming objections in both business and parenting can be tricky.  I try to stay open minded, but firm. Acknowledging feelings quickly while offering encouragement and support.  On a lighter note, this slaw recipe is full of creamy goodness. 

          This is a good choice for a potluck or taco night

  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 serrano chile (seeded and minced)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro (chopped) + extra to garnish
  • 5 green onions, minced
  • 8 cups green cabbage (sliced)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Mix lime juice, lime peel, chile,cumin, mayo, sour cream, garlic until smooth and creamy.Add cilantro, cabbage and green onions.  Toss well and place in the fridge up to a day in advance.

                                 What's your favorite potluck food?
