Light, creamy, and a little bit spicy, this quick Cilantro Slaw is terrific as a side dish or topping for tacos.

Heads up, friends, you’re going to want to check back here on Tuesday for a really great new taco recipe to pair with this slaw – both recipes are from Kelley Epstein‘s new cookbook, Apres All Day: 65+ Cozy Recipes to Share with Family and Friends.

Cilantro Slaw

This cilantro slaw was a perfect match for the Pineapple Chipotle Chicken Tacos that I’ll be sharing the recipe for next week.

We enjoyed this slaw first with the tacos and then enjoyed the leftover slaw with country ribs the next night.

Cilantro Lime Slaw

With a squeeze of lime and some fresh jalapeno added to the slaw along with a generous handful of cilantro, this is a coleslaw that doesn’t taste a bit like the average coleslaw.

You know how much we love southern-style coleslaw, but we also really like to mix our slaws up. The Jalapeno Corn Coleslaw was a new flavor combo for me a few years ago, you all have really loved it too.

Cranberry Apple Coleslaw is a sweet twist on the classic and this Cilantro Lime Coleslaw? It’s refreshing, light, and a great side dish for pretty much any meal.
