Saw the comment about this being too dry and flavorless so I added a good bit more cider vinegar. I also used a mayo alternate at double the recipe, used way more of the habanero hot sauce, cayenne, turmeric, and creole seasoning...all to taste with a good amount of salt and pepper. Oh, also 3 small mangos to balance the spice. Very, very good. I'll add this to my recipe box for sure. So, moral is, taste the dressing as you go and add to it if you think it needs more oomph. Enjoy!

This slaw turned out to be a perfect side for our Caribbean Night dinner. I made it exactly as the recipe stated and wouldn't change anything. I didn't find it dry. It was great the next day, too. Thanks for a fresh recipe!

I never liked slaw until I had this, never even wanted to try it. Anything with mangoes will do it for me though, so I gave it a shot and I loved it, as well as my family. I changed it up a little bit as I went, I didn't have cilantro or apple cider vinegar, and I used dijon mustard instead of regular mustard. It turned out great and I ate the leftovers first thing the next day. Thanks All Recipes

I loved this, despite the fact that this tiny little town didn't have any mangos and agave nector; so, am giving it 4 stars. Think maybe a fresh jalepeno would go well too. Will make again and again. Thank you, and will keep an eye out for the agave and mangos. updated: found some mangoes and now give this 5 stars

My family did not like this at all. Dry and no flavor other than the cilantro.

This was a touch labor intensive, that's just a personal opinion though as I don't like chopping vegetables on end ;) I really enjoyed the way the flavors melded, the agave and habanero were especially delicious! Thank you for sharing your recipe!
