1 head green cabbage, quartered and shredded
1 can of black olives, drained and sliced
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 bunch green onions, sliced
Handful of fresh cilantro, stems removed, finely chopped
2/3 cup sour cream
2/3 cup prepared Ranch dressing
¼ cup lime juice
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Mix together all dressing ingredients and pour over the combined salad ingredients. If the salad is not moistened enough, add some mayonnaise, as desired.
Shredded Jack or cheddar cheese
Cooked little shrimp, or sautéed bits of chicken
We made “burritos” using the Mexican Coleslaw and the garnishes. The salad is also good scooped up with tortilla chips.
A delicious accompaniment to this meal is corn on the cob.
