Chipotle Lime Slaw

I made this side as one of two salads to accompany a big batch of our favorite pulled pork for the DH’s going away party.

Gluten-free, primal, vegetarian

Chipotle Lime Slaw

1 cup chopped red cabbage
1/3 cup crema
2 teaspoons adobo sauce (the sauce canned chipotles come in)
The juice of 2 limes
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 scallions, chopped
2 Tablespoons lime basil, chopped
3 cups coleslaw mix
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
Salt & pepper

Whisk together the crema, adobo, lime juice, cumin, a big pinch sea salt and a few grinds black pepper in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss.

Taste. Add more acid or more salt as needed.

Serves a bunch – makes a great potluck side as part of a make-your-own taco bar
