Summer Cucumber Slaw

By • June 10, 2010 • 2 Comments



Author Notes: I pulled this together from random ingredients in my kitchen when looking for a flavorful topping to fish tacos, but found that it's great as a salad, too. All the ingredients can be adjusted to taste. I strongly suggested grilling the fresh corn before adding to the slaw.JulietteMiranda

Serves 4

  • 1 bunch Fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 Red onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cucumber, peeled
  • 3 ears of fresh corn, or 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed well
  • 1/2 package of pre-chopped cabbage cole saw mix
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • juice from one lime
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • 3 fresh tomatoes
  1. Soak red onion in water for about 30 minutes. Defrost frozen corn, or grill corn on the cob. Let cool before adding to slaw.
  2. Peel, then roughly dice cucumber.
  3. Roughly chop garlic, red onion, tomato and cilantro. If using grilled corn, remove corn from cob.
  4. Make slaw dressing by mixing garlic, lime juice, sour cream, vinegar, and olive oil in a small bowl.
  5. Make slaw by mixing onion, tomato, corn, cucumber, black beans, and cabbage in a large bowl.
  6. Add dressing to slaw and toss lightly. Season with salt & pepper. Mix in fresh cilantro last. Chill for 20-30 minutes before serving.

Sounds yummy! I would totally put this on a fish taco. Hey, your blog is very funny. Sorry to hear about your, um, razor mishap.

Thanks! I avoided the kitchen for a while after that too, just to be safe. :)
