Homemade Coleslaw with a KICK!
I met my husband years ago, during our starving college days. We weren't all that picky about the foods we ate. They needed to be cheap, plentiful, and preferably available at 3 AM on delivery. Fast forward a couple of decades and our taste buds have definitely matured.

Don't Let Spicy Jalapeno Coleslaw Scare You!
I grew up on fairly bland foods. I love New England baked beans and pot roast but they aren't the most bold and flavorful of dishes. Over the years, I have come to love the spicy heat of jalapenos and the acidity of citrus in my dinner recipes, even if the are some of the most common heartburn triggers.

Why Make Homemade Coleslaw with No Mayo
For years, the only homemade coleslaw recipe I saw with laden with mayonnaise. While tasty, they have their drawbacks. I don't really like leaving recipes with mayonnaise out on the picnic table for fear of food poisoning. They are also not all that healthy. You can skip the mayonnaise in this jalapeno cilantro coleslaw recipe and make an easy homemade lime vinaigrette instead!
How to Store Jalapeno Cilantro Coleslaw
Because this coleslaw recipe doesn't have any mayonnaise, it stores better than a traditional coleslaw. To maximize the shelf life of your cilantro coleslaw, refrigerate it in airtight containers. Properly stored, this coleslaw will last for about 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.
How to Make Lime Vinaigrette
Lime Vinaigrette is an easy and delicious addition to your homemade coleslaw recipe. Just squeeze a couple of limes into some olive oil. Add a pinch of red pepper flakes, black pepper, salt, garlic and honey. Whisk it together and voila! The perfect addition to your healthy coleslaw recipe!
