With just some oil, lime juice, and seasonings, shredded cabbage is transformed into a mouthwatering zesty side that is quite budget friendly. Some of my favorite ways to enjoy this side dish is part of a taco topping bar, or as a side with rice and grilled fish.

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice

Directions

  1. Shred cabbage into bitesize pieces.

  2. Whisk together oil, lime juice and seasonings. Pour over the shredded cabbage and toss well to combine. 

  3. Allow the slaw to chill in the fridge for 10 minutes so the flavors come together.
