Texas Slaw

This week a showy display of pink Ladyslippers at my neighbor's house. 

Texas Coleslaw
Cook's Notes: I have been down South many times and enjoyed their variety of dishes and home style cooking. But it was Up North when I had my first taste of Texas Slaw. It is a tangy salad with a Tex-Mex twist. What a nice change from the traditional coleslaw and a perfect side for your next potluck, tailgate party or BBQ. The salad should sit several hours for flavors to meld before serving.
Recipe from
  • 1-16 oz. package of coleslaw mix
  • 2 cans each 7 oz. Mexicorn or 2 cups frozen fresh corn
  • 2 fresh jalapenos peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup lite Ranch dressing
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 Tb. lime juice
  • 2 cups shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 of a red onion, cut in strips 
  • Mix peppers, cilantro, Ranch dressing, spices and lime juice.
  • Blend dressing mixture with corn, coleslaw mix, onion and cheese. 
  • Refrigerate several hours before serving.
