finely chopped red onion
fresh mango, cubed
white rice vinegar
Great coleslaw - it's definitely a combination of sweet and tangy! I love the vibrant colors and mix of flavors. I used a bag of coleslaw mix and 2 mangos vs. 1. I also added about 1/2 cup of raisins for contrast and they paired nicely with the walnuts. I mixed the dressing basically dissolving the sugar in the rice vinegar - taste it before you mix it in, if you don't like it before it goes over the salad you'll ruin the whole thing. I mixed everything and let it set overnight. It was a great accompaniment to grilled pork tenderloin.
I was looking for a fresh recipe to use my mango, but this slaw is a bit bland. I found it too sweet. I did add a bit of light mayo as a binder. It was OK, but I won't make it again.
This is super, watch thier eyes open when they try this recipe.
HUGE positive response to this. Brought it to work to share with staff and it was gobbled up in minutes!
The combination of cabbage, mangos,and walnut was very good. The recipe called for too much dressing. I'm thinking of making the dressing a little different with something other than just vinegar. The dressing was a little tart.
I've made this three times so far and each time, my partner who doensn't like fruit salad loved it! I like it because it's simple and easy and tastes great. It's even better I find if I let it sit for about 30 mins in the refrigerator beforehand to let the flavors meld together.
This is going to go PERFECTLY with my barbecued short ribs that I am fixing today. I picked it because it calls for ZERO oil or mayo. If you like a tangy cole slaw, you will love this. I heeded what others said and used the same amount of dressing in twice the amount of cabbage.
Fabulous combination! This will be a regular on my table as long as I can find fresh mangoes! My only criticism is that the recipe makes too much dressing, so next time, I'll either double the veggies or halve the dressing.
