EASY MANGO CABBAGE COLESLAW

Don’t you just love a good coleslaw recipe? Summer is all about easy, fresh and healthy salads that use fresh ingredients. Am I right?

I don’t know about you but what I love most about coleslaw recipes like this Easy Mango Cabbage Coleslaw is how versatile they are.

You can eat this for lunch with some avocado or grilled chicken or use it as a side dish to your summer meal or a topping for your tacos.

I also love how bright and colorful this salad is.

To make this Easy Mango Cabbage Coleslaw  extra easy I will buy a bag of pre-shredded cabbage from the store.

Trader Joes sells a red cabbage blend that I love that has shredded carrots, red and green cabbage in it.

If you buy a bag of this pre-shredded cabbage it makes throwing this salad together super easy.

Of course you can shred your own when you are ready to make this and just add in thinly sliced mango, jalapeño and cilantro along with a light lime based dressing.

This salad makes such a beautiful addition to any backyard picnic and it is always a huge hit.

You can leave the jalapeños out if your crowd isn’t into spice, but I personally love the extra touch of spice.

Another option with this salad is adding another spice like allspice, cumin or chili powder.

Speaking of backyard picnics, I feel like I have to get busy and enjoy those summer nights.

Yield: 4-6

Easy Mango Cabbage Coleslaw is light, easy to make and perfect as a summer side dish, on tacos or with avocado or grilled chicken added in. This salad is healthy, sweet with a hint of spice. 

Ingredients

For the coleslaw:

  • 4 cups of shredded cabbage {or a 12 to 14 ounce bag of pre-shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix}
  • 1 mango, thinly sliced {seed removed}
  • 1 jalapeño , seeds removed, sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped

For the dressing:

  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Greek Yogurt
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Optional: spice of your choice: cumin, allspice or chili powder

Instructions

In a large mixing bowl combine the cabbage, mango, cilantro and jalapeño and toss until combined.

In a mason jar or salad dressing container combine the olive oil, Greek yogurt, lime juice, salt and pepper and shake or stir well.

Gently pour the dressing over the coleslaw and toss until it is coated in the dressing.

Enjoy as a side salad, with avocado or chicken or on tacos.

Notes

If you like a creamier dressing use more Greek Yogurt to create a thicker dressing.

Feel free to add additional vegetables. I think adding spiralized vegetables could be fun: for example cucumber or zucchini.
