Where has Cilantro Cole Slaw been all my life! Seriously guys this is so easy to make and addictive to eat!
But it’s a “salad” so it’s all good for you and stuff! Plus doesn’t it take more calories to digest cabbage than cabbage actually has?
I actually talked Chris into taking the kids and me away for a few days, we ended up in Port Clinton Ohio right on Lake Erie. We spent 3 days eating fresh perch at every restaurant we could find.
You guys we had such a great getaway – I had no idea Ohio and Lake Erie would be a vacation spot I loved so much!
One of the restaurants right on a beach served fresh fried perch and this coleslaw. It was so good I knew I had to make it when we got home. I can’t believe how easy it is and so so good!
It’s just cole slaw with corn, black beans, and cilantro added in. But it’s like a whole different game with those 3 ingredients added.
Cilantro Cole Slaw
I suppose technically this would be a copycat recipe but for the record, I simply went off taste and what appeared to be in their slaw.
I find people either LOVE or HATE cilantro. I’m a lover, it adds such a pop of freshness to dishes!
This would pair so well with not only fried fish but my Perfect Pulled Pork or steaks on the grill!
This recipe works perfectly with your favorite already made slaw dressing but my Simple Creamy Cole Slaw Dressing is easy to make and is amazing!
