1/2 small green cabbage, shredded
1/2 small red cabbage, shredded
8-10 radishes, trimmed and finely sliced
2 carrots, peeled and finely sliced
a large bunch of fresh cilantro, leaves and stems finely chopped (more or less to taste)
1 or 2 large jalapeƱo's, finely sliced (more or less to taste!)
1 small red onion, peeled and finely sliced
extra virgin olive oil
juice of 2 limes
salt and pepper, to taste
diced avocado

Shred the green and red cabbage into two separate piles. Put just the white cabbage into a large bowl with the radishes, carrots and most of the cilantro. Mix everything together really well, then add almost all the chopped jalapeno, the red onion and red cabbage and pour on some extra virgin olive oil. Add most of the lime juice and a good pinch of salt and pepper, then toss together and taste. Just keep adjusting everything to your taste, if it needs more heat add some more jalapeno. When everything is just right, top with some diced avocado and a little swirl of olive oil and serve.
