Key ingredients of this slaw include green cabbage, fresh cilantro and lime zest and juice. Crunchy cabbage adds texture while aromatic cilantro adds herbaceous freshness. A citrus punch from lime zest and juice comes from its combination with other flavors; adding in jalapeno for some added kick adds complexity.
Shred the cabbage very finely using either a mandoline or sharp knife, making sure to remove any tough seedy centers that might remain. Or use pre-shredded cabbage bags – shredding will allow softening over time! When combined with other salad ingredients it should remain crisp yet tender as the flavors mingle together.
Mix together Greek yogurt, lime zest and juice, honey, ground cumin, sea salt and black pepper in a medium-size bowl before stirring it in with cabbage mixture. Thin the dressing as needed by adding water or apple cider vinegar – start by adding 1 tablespoon at a time and taste before continuing. You can either serve immediately, or store for up to three days for enhanced flavors to develop.

Stir the shredded cabbage and green onion together with the creamy cilantro lime dressing until well mixed, coating all of the vegetables evenly. Refrigerate the slaw before you are ready to serve it.
Refrigerated airtight containers should hold your slaw for up to 3 days. When making tacos, it’s best to prepare chicken, tortillas and slaw separately so you can build tacos based on what ingredients you prefer most.
