Cilantro Slaw

alt="cilantro slaw"

The Pioneer Woman is one of my go-to websites for new recipes. I’ve been reading Ree’s blog for years, so it has been fun to watch her new-ish TV show as well. Not long ago, she made a spicy pulled pork recipe that she served in a tortilla with a cilantro slaw. We have made that dish several times since then, and one of the best parts of the meal is the cilantro slaw. While I make mine a little differently than she does, it is so delicious that we now use cilantro slaw on lots of sandwiches and wraps. It has become somewhat of a staple in my kitchen. 

Whether we’re having shrimp wraps, fish tacos, or BBQ chicken sliders, we always make a bowl of cilantro slaw to top it off. The cool, crispy slaw pairs well with a warm, spicy sandwich filler.  And can you beat the taste of fresh cilantro? I don’t think so.
