This recipe for taco slaw uses a combination of mayo, sour cream and your choice of salsa. I prefer salsa verde (love the Trader Joe’s version), but you could also use a red salsa. I saved time using onion powder instead of chopping any onion, added chili powder, salt and pepper. A squeeze of lime with the zest brightens it up and cilantro pulls it all together.
