Creating new and exciting recipes is my passion, sharing them with you is my kindness.

Love or Hate?

Coleslaw is one of those Side dishes that people usually love or hate.

Then you have the multitude of variations: sweet, tangy, creamy or vinaigrette based.

Although I would say I am a lover of coleslaw, I am also a bit picky with them and tend to only like the creamy ones. I also opt towards shredded coleslaw compared to chopped. Chopped is harder to eat and works best as a topping than an actual side.

When I was growing up, you would never find this side in our house due to my mother having a strong hatred for its main ingredient: Cabbage.

Although there are many ways to ruin cabbage it really is a great and hearty ingredient. I love cabbage and most things that use this versatile ingredient.

This coleslaw recipe pairs well with pork and seafood recipes and is creamy, sweet and tangy.


  • two 16 ounce bags coleslaw
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 limes, zested and juiced
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a bowl, mix together milk, mayonnaise, lime juice and zest, sugar and mustard until thick and smooth.
  2. Add in coleslaw and cilantro, mix until coated. Season to taste.
  3. Refrigerate for as little as 1 hour and serve.

Coleslaw will last 3 days in the fridge.

* If you would like to prep the actual coleslaw, you will need to buy an approximately 2 pound head of green cabbage and 1 small carrot. you can cut it by hand thinly or put it through a food processor with a shred blade, if you cut by hand discard the core.
