This creamy lemon lime slaw is a great quick easy side for your 4th of July cookout! It creamy and with the zest of lemon and lime it’s refreshing too. I also spiked this slaw recipe up a bit with a heaping tablespoon of chili paste. The contrast of citrus and spice really gave it flavor. Mine was a real crowd pleaser I’m sure your will be too!

- 1 large carrot grated on the large side of a box grater

In a large bowl zest the yellow and green part only of the lemon and lime. Juice of the lemon, lime and salt, pepper, mayonnaise, chili paste and agave nectar whisk together.
