Slaw with a Kick!

This slaw has a a wonderful fresh taste and the hot sauce gives it just a nice little kick that surprises the taste buds!

Spicy Mexican Slaw with Lime and Cilantro
(Makes about 4 servings, recipe can be easily doubled. Recipe adapted slightly from Fine Cooking Annual 2008.)

6 cups of sliced cabbage- (I used bagged slaw cause I had it!)
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
4 T reduced fat mayo
3 T fresh lime juice (more or less to taste)
hot sauce to taste (I used Sriracha hot sauce- ½ t)
salt to taste

Put cabbage, green onions and cilantro in large bowl.

In small bowl, whisk together, mayo, lime juice, and hot sauce.

Use a wooden spoon to mix dressing into cabbage mixture. Season to taste with salt and serve immediately, or chill for a few hours.
