Tequila Slaw with Lime and Cilantro

I know it's going to be shocking when I say I made this.  It involved dumping everything in a bowl and mixing.  It was pretty good.  I would have again.  I'm not sure D would, but he isn't a huge coleslaw fan.

We had with Potato, Poblano, and Chorizo Tacos.

Grab a bag of packaged coleslaw mix, and you've saved yourself the time of slicing cabbage and shredding carrots. A splash of tequila adds spirit and complexity (we urge you not to leave it out), while lime juice's zing perks up earthy cabbage. Serve on tacos, alongside barbecue chicken, with grilled flank or skirt steak, or with (or on) burgers.

Yield: Serves 6 (serving size: about 2/3 cup)
Hands-on: 5 Minutes
Total: 5 Minutes

1/4 cup canola mayonnaise (such as Hellmann's)
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon silver tequila
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 (14-ounce) package coleslaw

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients; toss.
