I don’t normally get excited about coleslaw. I went to Applebee’s Restaurant and my meal came with a side of coleslaw. It was the best coleslaw I have ever had. For real! The magical ingredient was cilantro. It tasted super fresh. Why haven’t we been putting cilantro in our coleslaw all along?

Coleslaw is dutch for cabbage salad. Slaw with Cilantro is a summer cookout staple.
