Although a mix of red, orange, and yellow peppers will provide the prettiest appearance, this slaw can be made with just one type of bell pepper. For a spicier slaw, do not remove the inner flesh and seeds from the jalapeño. Very thin strips of bell pepper are essential for this recipe, so make sure your knife is plenty sharp.
2 tablespoons lime juice plus 1/2 teaspoon grated zest from 1 lime
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 small clove garlic , minced
1/2 medium jalapeño chile , seeded and minced
4 medium bell peppers , seeded and cut into 1/4-inch strips
1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
Whisk lime juice, zest, oil, garlic, jalapeño, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper together in large bowl. Add peppers and cilantro and toss well to combine. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper. Serve.
