Although it's not a traditional topping for American tacos, cabbage slaw is an essential ingredient when making fish tacos. This colorful, vinegar-dressed coleslaw can be made in just a few minutes. Use preshredded cabbage to make it even quicker.

I had lots of slaw left over. You could cut the recipe, but that would be a waste. Use it on a sandwich the next day at lunch in place of lettuce. Yum!
