Costa Rican Cabbage Slaw
This slaw is traditionally served as a side dish with rice and beans or to make a ‘gallo’ (a corn tortilla with shredded barbecued meat or chorizo).
1 cup seeded and diced tomatoes
1/2 cup firmly packed minced fresh cilantro
1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper (optional)
1 small head green cabbage, finely shredded
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
Salt, to taste
- Mix the tomatoes, cilantro, and red pepper in a bowl.
- Add the cabbage and toss.
- Add the lime juice and salt to taste at the last minute before serving to avoid wilting of the cabbage.
