Avocado & Lime Coleslaw – Recipe

I made this coleslaw to go along side a Mexican pork dish with a mole sauce and it was a lovely accompaniment.  I used a whole head of cabbage from the share, so there were plenty of leftovers.  They kept very well and I was able to serve them to guests as an horesdorve the next night too.  The avocado gives the dish a delightfully creamy texture, the cilantro and lime really compliment the zingy cabbage flavor and the red onion adds just the right accent for a finishing touch.
