We attended our friends' Cinco de Mayo party on Saturday night (So, Ocho de Mayo?) and had a great time enjoying the rare semi-warm spring evening in Portland with a sunset that wasn't hidden by grey clouds.
Mojito Cole Slaw
- 1/2 a large cabbage, chopped into thin shreds
- 1 large carrot grated or shredded in a food processor
- 1/2 a jicama, julienne
- 1 cup yogurt
- 4 tablespoons of mint, chiffonade
- juice of 1/2 a lime
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- the zest of 1 lime
- 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
Make the dressing first by adding the yogurt, salt, pepper, mint, lime juice, lime zest, and celery salt in a bowl. Mix the cabbage, jimaca, and carrot together in a large bowl. Then, incorporate the dressing and the cabbage mixture well. Keep refrigerated.
I leave you with pinata pictures.
