Photo: Quentin Bacon; Styling: Anghard Bailey
Hands-on time 7 mins
Total time 1 hr, 7 mins
Yield 8 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
This citrusy take on coleslaw is fresh and pleasantly spicy, making it an ideal side dish or burger or brat topping. Leave the seeds in more peppers for added fire, or seed all of them for a milder dish.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 (16-ounce) package cabbage-and-carrot coleslaw
  • 4 jalapeño peppers, halved crosswise
