Mexican Coleslaw ~ Mid Week Munchies

It is common in our neighborhood to get together a few times during the summer and have a "Neighborhood BBQ". This summer I tried an amazing coleslaw my neighbor shared. I had to track her down a few days later to get her recipe, it is the perfect summer dish, second only to my {hot potato salad}. She didn't have a name, so because of the cilantro, avocados, black beans and corn and dubbed it Mexican Coleslaw.

This recipe is fresh {perfect with all the fresh veggies in season}, simple and only takes a few minutes to prepare.

Mexican Coleslaw:
1 package Coleslaw {you can also buy green/red cabbage and dice it yourself}
1 can corn {drained}
1 can black beans {drained}
1/3 cup diced green onions
1 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup diced black olives
1/4 cup diced cilantro
1 avocado chopped
 Mix ingredients in a large bowl.
Add 3/4 cup Jalapeno Ranch Dressing and toss thoroughly to coat coleslaw. Garnish with cilantro. Chill in fridge and serve when ready.

This was absolutely so delicious! Had friends over and she was making enchiladas and rice so I made the bean and this recipe of Mexican coleslaw. It was a hit so yummy. This is a keeper.
