Mexican Slaw

This salad uses ingredients available easily from your local supermarket. You probably have most of them available now your fridge and pantry.

Incorporate this salad on your next Taco Tuesday dinner menu for a fun refreshing twist on regular coleslaw. Our family loves Mexican themed food and it can get a little boring eating the same thing repeatedly.

Not to mention that it’s great to give your body different foods for a wider variety of nutrients. Serve this alongside your enchilada’s, burrito’s, tostada’s, fish taco’s, chilli con carne, jacket potato’s or Mexican buddha bowls.
