South of the Boarder Slaw

My California family has a long standing tradition that whenever I’m “home”, in USA, we go to La Especial in Leucadia California. This is where the family goes at least twice a month, what can I say! One of the most delicious cabbage salads in the world awaits me and is always fresh zingy and just to die for seriously. However, it is so dang simple to make. Here it is and it’s all in the simple dressing! Oh by the way, my recipe calls for jalapeños…of course!

Instructions
  1. No need to ramble....put all the above ingredients in a large bowl and squeeze the lime over the top. Drizzle with the oil. Toss in the salt and give it a good mixing and voila! This can be made ahead of time. Actually the longer it sits the better!
  2. Make sure it is room temperature when you serve it. You'll need to make a taste test before serving like all good cooks...it might need another zap of lime or a pinch more of salt!
