Pico de Gallo Cabbage Slaw

pico de gallo

True Belizian

Our family and church friends spent a delightful Sunday in the home of our friend Anna, whose mother is Belizian.  Anna’s parents live in Belize but have been visiting in the states for several months.

3 generations: Anna, her daughter Maya and her mother, Flora.

This is a unique way to make a slaw and, if you like Belizian flavor, you’ll like this.  The recipe is simple and easy.  You’ll need cabbage, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper.

Without the cabbage, you can serve the recipe as a salsa.

By using several avocados, you can make a simple Guacamole.  Mash the avocados, add the Pico de Gallo, then add salt to taste.

This recipe comes from the Belizian cookbook called Savor Belize.  The recipe is from the kitchen of Mrs. Zonya Salas.

The Recipe

This recipe was posted several years ago, but I’ve been asked about it – so I’m re-posting it. We continue to enjoy Belizian food served in Anna’s home – and sometimes in our own. Matter of fact, I think it’s about time to see about getting another invite – what do you think?! 🙂
