I made this slaw to go inside fish tacos but it is a great stand-alone slaw.  I grilled corn on the cob & used that in this – but not grilled is fine.

Easy, easy, easy.



Mixed Cabbage & Grilled Corn Slaw


3 cups red cabbage – sliced thin

2 cups green cabbage – sliced thin

2 cups corn (2 ears grilled in their husks & cut from the cob or raw – or canned/frozen, in a pinch)

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup Mexican Crema (or more mayonnaise)

1/2 red onion – sliced thin

1 tsp Old Bay seasoning

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp chili powder

2 limes – zest & juice

1 cup cilantro – chopped



Grill your corn still in their husks – rotating frequently.  After about 20 minutes – check to see if they are beginning to char (you want that).  When they are – give it 5 more minutes or so then let them cool.  Peel & cut the corn from the cobs.  Or – go raw or canned or frozen.

Mix the mayonnaise & crema (if using) with the spices & lime zest.  Blend all the ingredients (except cilantro) in a large bowl and chill for an hour or more.  Sprinkle with cilantro and lots of cracked pepper when serving.
