Mexican Corn Coleslaw

When you’re thinking about that pool party or backyard BBQ, and you’re wondering what you’re going to prepare that’s going to be easy to whip up and tasty enough to have everybody coming back for seconds, this Mexican coleslaw is the dish that’ll get you through the summer. While we’ll always love traditional coleslaw, we can’t help but feel that this one is way better, since it’s pumped up and chock full of color and flavor. Cabbage and/or coleslaw mix is still the base of this recipe, but we’ve thrown in a bunch of add-ins – corn, bell peppers, black beans, jalapeño and lime juice – that turn this into something special…trust us, you’re going to like this!
