Looking for something with a little South Western flair to go with those tacos?  Cabbage and Onions make a fantastic South Western style salad!


What you need:

  • 3 cups chopped cabbage
  • ½ red onion cut into thin slices

How to Do it:

NOTE: to juice the lime, roll it on the counter to loosen the juices.  Cut and juice with a citrus reamer.  It will release the juice and some of the pulp.


Make the dressing first – Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and blend well using a wire whisk.   Whisking well to emulsify, or thicken, the dressing.  Pour into a small jar and chill.
