Creamy Citrus Slaw

What is it about the combination of fat and fresh that really works? This mayo based creamy citrus slaw with crunchy cabbage is exactly that. It is the perfect side or topper for blackened fish sandwiches or filling for shrimp tacos. It is easy to assemble with no heat cooking or chopping required.



1/2 bag slaw mix (reserve the other 1/2 for veggie bowls later in the week) 


1/4 cup real mayo, Duke’s is a good choice as it contains no sugar

2 tbsp rice wine vinegar

1 tbsp agave 

juice  & zest from 1/2 lime

juice from 1/2 orange 

salt & pepper to taste 

*optional add ins, cilantro, fresh pineapple chunks, poppy seeds, fresh jalapeños


  1. Mix all dressing ingredients in a bowl. Stir to desired consistency. Reserve half of the mixture for dressing the sandwich or tacos.
  2. Add slaw mix. Stir and coat.
  3. Refrigerate. Up to 24 hours ahead.
  4. Serve as desired.

This is an easy crowd pleasing dish for any Taco Tuesday or summer bbq. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
