Mexican Slaw With Honey Lime Vinaigrette

This super easy Mexican slaw has my favorite ingredients of cilantro, cumin and lime with a tangy vinaigrette dressing. A perfect complement to any meal!

One of my favorite ways to maintain my long term weight loss success is to load up on crunchy, hearty veggies at mealtime.

Low in calorie and full of fiber, veggies like cabbage, carrots and scallions help fill you up without weighing you down.

Hate chopping? Let your food processor do the work and use the slicing attachment.  Add any veggies you have on hand (zucchini, green cabbage, broccoli, celery, etc.) and in minutes you will have a giant bowl of nutrition.

Whatever you do, skip the creepy mayo-based salad at the deli counter. My tangy and sweet honey lime vinaigrette is so flavorful, I promise you won’t miss the store-bought slaw dressing.

You’ll thank me when you slip into your bathing suit this spring. Your fork is waiting.
