Alice Waters' Coleslaw

I was looking for a different coleslaw recipe and this one was great!



Zest and juice (about 4 tablespoons) from 2 fresh limes
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt (or more to taste)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper (or more to taste)
Large pinch of sugar (or more to taste)
1/4 cup olive oil

3-pound green cabbage, outer leaves and core removed
1 large jalapeño pepper, seeds removed and finely chopped
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1 cup finely chopped cilantro, stems and leaves

DRESSING Whisk together lime zest and juice, vinegar, salt, pepper, sugar and olive oil in a container. Taste and adjust seasonings. Set aside.

VEGETABLES Cut large chunks from cabbage and chop finely with a sharp knife. Place in a large container. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings again. Cover and refrigerate for an hour or more, stirring occasionally to distribute dressing.
