Not sure people get that is a topper not a main course this is what Mexican restaurants use to add variety to texture, our local restaurant adds bell paper and celery so did I. I could add this to my meals daily and not even feel guilty.
I'm not sure that some of these reviewers have had Mexican cole slaw before. Not everything labeled Mexican is hot and spicy. I've had this many times in Mexican restaurants along with the traditional chips and salsa. It's not spicy. I might go along with adding just a bit of red onion, but this is the real deal here in the West.
needs work --- not spicy enough --- try adding some red onion, or green onions, maybe some pico de gallo, &/or please some kind of chili, flakes, hot sauce, adobo sauce with jalapeño peppers ---- something!
Love it! We love this as is. But for those looking for a little sweetness, we tried adding jicama to it yesterday. I thought it was a nice addition and all three kids loved it that way. Pros: Great alternative to mayo filled coleslaw
Best ever non-mayo slaw I add thinly sliced green onion. This is a one of my standard recipes for slaw and I use it regularly in my Cafe. Pros: Light and fresh- no mayo Cons: none
Horrible This recipe was so bad we ended up throwing it away. Everyone tried it and no one liked it. The cilantro was overpowering and the base texture was unappetizing. Pros: None Cons: disliked flavor and texure

Yuuuuummy! New favorite slaw recipe! Per another reviewer, I added a little cumin, fresh lime juice & extra cilantro....& also shredded radishes. The flavor is sooo good. I would have never thought to put cilantro in slaw, (although we love it), but it is fabulous! Great recipe!
I loved the recipe. Reminds me of home. I would consider using champagne or apple cidar vinegar instead of rice vinegar and grapeseed oil instead of olive oil (it brings out the flavor of the cilantro, cabbage and carrots more. Toss in just a bit of black pepper and if you prefer just a bit of spice, a pinch of red chili powder (usually comes in mild, hot and very hot).
