Though originally conceived to top fish tacos, this slaw is good enough to serve on other sandwiches or to stand alone as a crunchy accompaniment to many grilled main courses. The quantity produced here will top 12 tacos, 4 tortas, or provide a side dish for 4.

- 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice

- 1 tablespoon finely minced orange zest
- 3 tablespoons corn oil
- 5 cups thinly sliced red cabbage

In a large bowl, whisk together the orange juice, lime juice, orange zest, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Gradually whisk in the oil; the dressing will thicken. Add the cabbage, season generously with pepper and toss. Adjust the seasoning.
