Cilantro-Lime Coleslaw

The first time I ever had “Cilantro-Lime” anything was during my first-ever experience at Chipotle. That was also the first time I ever got to customize my own burrito!!! What?! You can actually control what goes into your burrito?! “Load me up with extra carne asada, please!”, I asked the fine chef (I don’t even know if he was really even a chef).

When I took a bite, what I first noticed was the rice was absolutely fragrant and flavorful! I never had that combination of Cilantro & Lime before. At least not in rice.

Anyhow, I digress. You want a healthy coleslaw that will fill you up but won’t fill you with regret later? Try this extra simple and amazing Cilantro-Lime Coleslaw Recipe from my friends at┬á
