Like all people, I have a few things I just do not like eating: celery, black licorice, coconut. I just am not a fan. I would not describe myself as a picky eater, but those are just some of the things that I would like to avoid if possible.
But there are things that I can eat over and over, day after day: pizza, chocolate croissants, tacos. Tonight, we ate some delicious pulled-pork tacos with this delicious Mexican slaw. Now, don’t feel restricted. It doesn’t just need to be eaten on tacos. It can be eaten on a tortilla chip. It can be eaten with a fork with nothing else. It could be a delicious side dish. All I know is that it is soo good. I must share. Well, I must share the recipe at least.
Recipe from friend
1/2 head of cabbage (shredded)
1-2 pickled jalapenos (finely diced)
2 medium tomatoes (diced)
1/2 large or 1 small onion (can be red or sweet onion)
3 limes worth of juice
1/4 cup of cilantro
4 tablespoons pickled jalapeno juice (or vinegar)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-5 cloves of garlic (this is to your taste)
1. Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to 2 hours (overnight yields best meshing of flavors-the longer you let it sit, the more flavorful).
2. Adjust seasonings to taste.
3. Eat with tortilla chips. Eat with tacos. Eat with fork. Yum!
I will throw a cautionary tale out there. Be careful with the pickled jalapenos. Those babies are still hot and spicy. If you don’t really like spicy foods, take it down a notch. If you like spicy foods, throw an extra one in for good measure.
