Grab a bag of packaged coleslaw mix, and you've saved yourself the time of slicing cabbage and shredding carrots. A splash of tequila adds spirit and complexity (we urge you not to leave it out), while lime juice's zing perks up earthy cabbage. Serve on tacos, alongside barbecue chicken, with grilled flank or skirt steak, or with (or on) burgers.
1/4 cup canola mayonnaise (such as Hellmann's)
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon silver tequila
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 (14-ounce) package coleslaw
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients; toss.

Easy and good. I'm not usually a fan of mayo based slaws, but I liked this one. The splash of tequila gives it a little mysterious tang. I left out the cilantro and scallions, and used a slaw mix with cabbage and carrots.
This is the best coleslaw recipe I've ever come across! I usually add a little more mayo and juice since I use a larger bag of coleslaw mix, but the consistency of the sauce is perfect and the taste is amazing!
