Truth time…I have never been a fan of coleslaw. I can actually count on one hand the number of times I have had coleslaw. When my Godmother said she was going to make some I was not super excited to say the least. Well… that all changed the minute I tasted it. Jalapeño & Cilantro Coleslaw is now one of my most favorite summer sides!
It is all about the prep
When SandyJones, my Godmother, said she was going to make coleslaw I just figured we would buy a bag of slaw and go from there…well I was WRONG. She bought a head of cabbage and cut that bad boy up, and I have to say this is the only way I will do it going forward.
The freshness of the cabbage was so, so good and honestly it was kinda therapeutic to slice it all up. If you wanted to buy a bag of slaw you definately could and it would work great, but if you have a few extra minutes I would go with the head of cabbage.
After the cabbage was sliced she went to town on the onion, jalapeño and cilantro, cutting them into small pieces. This not only adds great texture to the slaw but also a bit of everything in each bite.
Oh this view
When SandyJones made this slaw we were at their place in Corpus Christi. I love going there to fish, check back next week for an AMAZING fried fish dish (& yes I caught the fish we fried up), but I also go for the view. This picture was taken as we were preparing dinner.
For the record no filter was used and yes I may have cried a little when I realized the beauty I was surrounded by. It is moments like this that make me really appreciate everything big and small in my life…I mean is it not AMAZING!
PS…it is KETO friendly and not too spicy
Now I understand that some might not be a fan of spicy foods so the idea of a jalapeño being in the slaw, but if you remove all the seeds it really is not that spicy at all. Actually I thought it could be a little spicier, but if you wanted to leave it out all together you could.
To make this even better it is KETO friendly with only
