Pulled Pork Tacos with Cilantro Lime Slaw and Avocado Crema

I don't have a picture of these tacos because we ate them before I could get a pic! They're that good, y'all! OH! And this recipe uses leftover pulled pork from the previous recipe on this blog. Just scroll down a little further to see the full pork recipe. So. so. delicious. 


-for the slaw-
red cabbage
English cucumber (seedless)
chopped cilantro

-for the dressing-
¾ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbl honey
1 ripe lime
½ tsp salt
sugar as needed

Chop half of the red cabbage thinly or chop in a food processor. Peel cucumber, cut into long strips then chop into small pieces to make small cubes. Toss cabbage and cucumbers with chopped cilantro. Whisk together dressing and add more of anything to taste. Then toss together with the cabbage mixture.

1 medium ripe avocado, pit removed, flesh mashed nearly smooth with a fork
