This cabbage slaw is similar to coleslaw and can be used for many recipes, like fish and meat tacos, burgers, and more. It lasts 3-4 days in the fridge, so we recommend meal-prepping for the week if you make a big batch. This slaw is tangy, crunchy, and delicious.
This Mexican slaw requires simple ingredients like red and green cabbage, green onions, spices, fresh lime, cilantro, sour cream, and yogurt.

This Mexican slaw is easy to make and requires only 15 minutes! You will need a food processor or chopper grinder to make the tangy Cilantro Garlic Sauce.
Make the sauce.
Add cilantro, green onion, lime juice and zest, sour cream, yogurt, salt and pepper, garlic powder, and cumin to a blender, food processor, or chopper grinder and blend on low speed for 1 minute or until cilantro is fully chopped and blended in the sauce.
Add sauce to shredded cabbage.
Shred the cabbage with a knife or a mandoline slicer and add the cabbage to a large bowl. Add cilantro cream sauce on top and give everything a good toss.
Taste, season, and enjoy.
Taste the slaw and see if you need to add a pinch of salt, more lime juice, or maybe a pinch of cayenne for some heat. Serve as a side dish or add it to tacos.
Red cabbage is sometimes called purple since its leaves are dark purple-reddish. Red cabbage is typically a little smaller and denser than green cabbage and has a more peppery taste.
Mexican slaw is the same as Mexican coleslaw and can also be known as taco slaw. It’s primarily made of finely shredded or chopped raw cabbage, and other fresh veggies can be added, like red pepper, carrot, and kohlrabi mixed in a creamy-based dressing.
