  • 1 green cabbage
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro

  • Olive oil, about 1/4 of a cup
  • Carrots, 1 or 2, depending on their size
  • Red onion (I used half of a big one)


Mamas Helpful Tips:

  • You can really adjust this recipe to suit your tastes. Experiment to find the right combination for you and your family.
  • When handling jalapenos, wash your hands immediately, in lemon juice if possible, or else your eyes will burn if you touch them.



  1. Place Cilantro, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, jalapeno in a little chopper or food processor.
  2. Shred up the cabbage, carrots and red onion.  A mandolin works wonders for this.
  3. Mix the veggies and add the dressing and VOILA…mayo-less cole slaw!
