Broccoli Slaw with Cilantro Lime Dressing

Broccoli Slaw with Cilantro Lime Dressing
Broccoli slaw is a crunchy side dish that pairs well with grilled chicken or fish. It can also be used in place of slaw on BBQ sandwiches. The shredded radishes give the slaw a kick, the cumin gives the dressing a slightly smoky flavor and the cilantro lime dressing adds a sour citrus note.  If you leave the radishes out, the dressing will be too sour. Either decrease the amount of lime juice or increase the amount of honey!
