My family uses this cabbage slaw recipe for numerous dishes... Great addition to all types of tacos, enchiladas or as a side salad. I can't think of a better name than calling it a
'Mexican slaw' because of its ingredients.
So, for now that's how I'll refer to this slaw.
1/2 green cabbage (thinly sliced)
1/4 bunch of cilantro (chopped)
1 tomato (diced)
2 small cucumbers (diced)
1/4 onion (finely diced)
1 TB salt
1/2 TB oregano
(great for 3-4 people, use whole head of cabbage for 5 or more people)
Begin by finely slicing all the cabbage, place in a large bowl fill with water & allow to sit for 10 minutes or so. This cleans it! Remember it must be very thinly sliced (as my mom would say).
After it has sat drain out all the water, make sure its almost dry before adding other ingredients.
Diced, tomato, cucumbers, onion & chop the cilantro...
Place in a separate bowl (if cabbage is still draining)..
Add salt, oregano & lemon & incorporate.
Add in cabbage incorporate well well tomato mixture & your done!
