Cabbage and Cilantro Lime Slaw

This cole slaw is different - it's very light and refreshing - and it keeps well in the refrigerator, so it's a great "make ahead" dish.  I actually think it tastes even better after sitting for a day to marinate, so I recommend making this dish the day before your get-together.

Cabbage & Cilantro Lime Slaw

1/2 medium head green cabbage, thinly sliced

1/2 thinly sliced medium white onion

1/2 C. fresh cilantro, chopped

3 T. fresh lime juice (about 1.5 limes)
