Coleslaw with Lime & Coriander (Cilantro)

A creamy coleslaw flavoured with lime and coriander.  This side dish has an added lift with the flavours and is great with a burger.

I love coleslaw and most weeks make a batch of it to go with my lunchtime frittata.   This makes a nice change by spicing it up with lime and coriander (cilantro).  You could also add some hot sauce to this too.   Or perhaps chop up a few mild chilli peppers too.  Coleslaw is a great way to get some raw veggies in you too!As for the mayonnaise, it goes without saying that I use homemade and none of that white rubbish in a jar!  It is very easy to make and far tastier!   A batch of home made mayonnaise lasts about a week in the fridge, in a sealed jar/tupperwear pot.
