Rating : Not Rated

This is very flavorful and works great with carnitas or fish tacos.

Yield: 4
Prep time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: Under 15 Minutes
Course: Side Dishes/Vegetables

  • 1 Head Green Cabbage
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1 Bunch Green Onions
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp Sour Cream
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Cumin
  • 1/4 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • Juice from 1/2 Lime
  • Juice From 1/2 Lemon
  • 1 Tsp White Vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper


Slice the cabbage into thin strips.

Peel the carrots and discard skin.  Continue peeling to get very thin strips of carrot.  If your carrot strips are long, cut them in half or thirds.

Slice from the top of the green onions until you have around 1/2 cup.

Cut about 1/2 cup of cilantro leaves and roughly chop.

Combine all vegetables in a bowl.

For the dressing, combine all other ingredients in a small bowl.  Whisk together until the sugar has dissolved.

Pour over vegetables and toss.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
