Cabbage Slaw Salad

We went to dinner the other day, and me husband's food came with a little side slaw.  I tried it, and thought they added sugar or something to it which I found to be unnecessary.  So I decided to created my own clean version, full of flavor and color.  If you want to be fancy, you can use the mandolin.  I was being lazy and didn't want to pull the mandolin out and  just cut up the cabbage by hand with a good knife.

Red Cabbage Shredded(1/4 - 1/2 depending on size of cabbage)
Green Cabbage Shredded (1/4 - 1/2 depending on size of cabbage)
1-2 Carrots Shredded (I use a julienne peeler - super simple)
1 lime
Handful of cilantro
Scallions - diced (optional)
Pink Himalayan Salt

Step #1 : Shred & cut ingredients.  Toss into bowl.  Add juice of 1 lime, cilantro, & salt.  Mix well & serve.
Step #2 : Enjoy.  The simplicity allows the lime & cilantro to really shine through for a very satisfying salad meal or side.
