Prepare Slaw Dressing (see below).
In a large bowl, combine chopped cabbage, cucumber, and cilantro.
Pour the prepared Slaw Dressing over cabbage mixture and toss gently until blended.
For best results, cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight for flavors to blend. Gently toss again before serving.
