My husband is not fond of mayonnaise so I have never fixed a traditional style of coleslaw. However, I enjoy eating a variety of salads and using shredded cabbage is easy and nutritious. My cilantro is finally at the picking stage. That means that it’s time to use some in my favorite refreshing cabbage salad. This salad makes a great side dish for tacos, burgers or even sandwiches. Honestly, I can just eat it all by itself!
This cabbage salad uses minimal ingredients. So the next time you are at the store pick up some cabbage, grab some cilantro if it’s not growing in your garden and whip up a batch of this enjoyable summer salad.
