I love the idea of cole slaw, but I’m not a big fan of using mayonnaise. I prefer a healthier version of cole slaw with great flavor that will make it more than just a side dish. I want it to delight my taste buds. Believe me when I say, this Light and Easy Honey Lime Cole Slaw will make even the most doubtful cole slaw eater a believer. It’s full of flavor that will keep you heart healthy and happy!
Don’t get me wrong, there are times when I will use mayo, but this is just not one of those times. In my cole slaw, I prefer a vinegar base with extra virgin olive oil, but to add sweetness and some zest, I add honey and fresh lime juice. It definitely isn’t rocket science, but it definitely is delicious! Use it as a side dish, on fish tacos, on pulled pork sandwiches, or any number of ways.
