Tacos for a Friday night? Yes please! 

These Cajun Grilled Chicken Tacos with Corn Cilantro Lime Ranch Coleslaw could be considered street food, really good street food in fact! However these tacos are a very healthy street food. 

This grilled chicken is easily prepared with a cajun spice rub, grilled and then topped with this Corn Cilantro Lime Ranch Coleslaw. The flavours of summer come through with the corn, red cabbage, lime, cilantro and chives. The ranch dressing provides a creaminess that brings out all the wonderful seasoning of this slaw.
