Hearty red cabbage, rich avocado and zingy lime combine pleasingly in this colorful side dish, and you can whip it up in a snap. This Mexican-flavored slaw goes great with just about any protein source – from sausages and steak to grilled shrimp and baked fish.
Pay attention to the big fiber content, which comes both from the avocado and the red cabbage.
