Cabbage And Radish Slaw

The inspiration for this dish comes from tacos!  Food trucks are a pretty big deal in Columbus and have a huge following.

When Scott and I started frequenting taco trucks, I noticed that a lot of tacos are actually served with shredded cabbage and sometimes sliced radish with a wedge of lime.

This was a new thing for me, I had not seen that before on tacos.  Most likely due to the fact that I had never been to a taco truck before where traditions are kept in tact and simple is the rule.

I loved this combo and decided to incorporate that into our tacos at home.  I just took it a step further and created a quick little slaw with the ingredients.

Andrea’s Cabbage and Radish Slaw

  • 1/4 Medium Sized Cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 8-10 Radishes, finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • 2TBSP Red Wine Vinegar
  • Handful of cilantro, chopped
  • 1tsp Hot Sauce
  • 2TBSP Olive Oil
  • 2tsp Cane Sugar
  • Pinch chili powder and garlic powder (no more than 1/4tsp each)
  • Pinch of Salt and Pepper

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and allow to chill for one hour before serving.

We had ours with some carnitas tacos.  This can be eaten as a side dish as well or pair with my black bean and corn salsa for a veggie taco.

Have fun guys and remember, always play with your food!  Enjoy!
