Cabbage Salad w/ Chipotle-Lime Vinaigrette

Looking for something with a little South Western flair to go with those tacos?  Cabbage and Onions make a fantastic South Western style salad!


What you need:

  • 3 cups chopped cabbage
  • ½ red onion cut into thin slices
  • 3 thinly sliced radishes


  • 2-3 chipotle chilies in adobo, chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced (see note)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Pinch of salt and lemon pepper

How to Do it:

NOTE: to juice the lime, roll it on the counter to loosen the juices.  Cut and juice with a citrus reamer.  It will release the juice and some of the pulp.


Make the dressing first – Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and blend well using a wire whisk.   Whisking well to emulsify, or thicken, the dressing.  Pour into a small jar and chill.

Toss the vegetables with the dressing and allow to chill for about 30 minutes before serving.


Makes 4 servings

    This is a great idea. I’m going to make it with maple syrup instead of honey. I’m vegan and would prefer it that way. Saw you at No Rules Party, where I shared “Self-care Activities to Encourage Optimal Health.” Have a great weekend and Happy Holiday.
