Hints:

You can use any type of cabbage (choose your favourite) but the red/purple cabbage will bleed slightly into your sour cream giving it a slight purple tinge.  It still tastes good!

You may choose to add other ingredients to your slaw like finely slice snow peas, celery, capsicum and so on.  By doing this you can make this recipe your own.

Make sure you taste the sour cream dressing before mixing in with the cabbage as it may need more lime juice, cumin or coriander.
