Mango Cilantro Slaw

Recipe by  

"This is different twist on cabbage slaw. It's very easy and the mango and honey make it sweet; no sugar in this recipe! Great by itself or wrap a corn tortilla around grilled tilapia and top with this cilantro slaw for a great-tasting fish taco! For a bit thicker dressing you can add additional mayonnaise."

Really good. I switched out mango with crushed pineapple and added crushed red pepper. Was great for a party and fish taco bar.

This was good! NOTE: Try not to make this too far in advance b/c it does get super watery. Great flavor combo, and I agree that this would be awesome served on top of fish tacos. I plan to try this that way next time, as I just served this a a side to chicken sandwiches tonight. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing. :)

I sort of created my own on this recipe using done and adding others; added white onion instead of green, added a little sour cream, added fresh squeezed lime! Very good!

great stuff, have used it on fish tacos and pulled pork sandwiches. I always sub a couple of drained mango fruit cups since I can't ever find fresh.

I made this salad for a family party; everyone loved it. As a previous reviewer mentioned, this salad is very watery. You start off with a large bowl of cabbage and over time, moisture is emitted from the cabbage as it ferments. So the size of the salad reduces quite bit. I did not have mangos, so I added mandarin oranges. Although I added the fruit at the very end, this probably added to the moisture also. All in all this is a very tasty salad and I will definitely make it again.

My friend made this recipe twice and I loved it. I just marinated the shredded cabbage in the dressing, for an hour and then tossed in the other ingredients. I love the fresh cilantro zing.
