Cilantro-Lime Southwestern Slaw

My five-year-old now eats three whole tacos on taco night!  Must be all that running around he does. 

But seriously, the child is growing like a weed, and I can’t even believe how grown-up he is all of a sudden.

Can someone please hand me a tissue?

I love crunchy slaw on tacos.  This Cilantro-Lime Southwestern slaw is all that and a bag of chips.  It is






And gives tacos that wow factor.

Plus, there are loads of vegetables in it.  AND it is so colorful.  I love it when vegetables add color to my plate.
