Cilantro-Lime Chipotle Chicken Slaw

Cilantro-Lime Chipotle Chicken Slaw
from: Dottygumdrop

1/2 cup mayo (plus a little more if needed)
1 chipotle in adobo sauce (minced; I usually blitz up a whole tin in the mini-processor, then just used 1 Tbs of the paste)
1½ Tbs Dijon mustard
1½ tsp cumin
3 Tbs lime juice (about 1½ limes)
salt and pepper
1 small red onion, finely diced
4 Tbs cilantro, coarsely chopped
1 medium carrot, shredded
½ small white cabbage, finely sliced
3-4 cups chopped, cooked chicken

1. In a small bowl, mix mayo, chipotle, Dijon, cumin, lime juice, salt and pepper..
2. In a separate bowl, stir red onion and cilantro, shredded carrot, cabbage and chicken together, then pour mayo mix over it and stir all together. Add more mayo and lime juice if the mix appears a little dry.
3. Cool in fridge for several hours to let flavours merge, then serve in lettuce wraps, with some avocado or on French bread with a slice of provolone.
