Mango Slaw

Mango slaw

I finally got around to make a salmon burger recipe which I topped with this mango slaw. This week we eat everything mango because I grabbed a box for $10 at Costco. Mangoes are on a clean fifteen list so I do not bother buying organic as we peel them anyways. Saving wherever I can in order to be able to afford organic meat and dairy.

I added a tbsp of white vinegar because I love its mild taste unlike apple cider vinegar (Alex can’t stand it). A sprinkle of salt and then I decided to toss and see how is the flavour. It was fantastic and no oil necessary. You can add a bit of mild tasting oil like avocado but because I used this Mango Slaw for topping rich in Omega 3 salmon burgers, we didn’t need more fat.

My kids absolutely love fresh mango and I love using it in cooking: Thai mango curry, avocado tuna salad and coconut mango ice cream for dessert.

Be healthy and happy because life is too short to be sick and miserable (which happens when you eat deli green coleslaw – ewe, and that potato salad – yuck, try my healthy potato salad instead).

        *Olena NOT Okena! Oops! Sorry… “fat finger” text – and not proof reading b4 sending! Appologies!
        Also, Mango slaw was a hit & now looking at the next recipe… Avocado Tuna Salad!! Like I mentioned b4… we love salads. Our “winter” weather (Texas) has been a mild one thus far & I’m craving salads w/ lighter meals! (Think I’m rushing in the Spring/Summer)!

        1. I fixed it, don’t worry, not a big deal. 🙂 Just got back from Mexico and ate a lot of salads after many meals and ended with desserts lol. who am i kidding?!

        Made this today… just bought Mango yesterday & I already had Cabbage in fridge just waiting for this recipe!! 🙂 My husband & I BOTH loved it!! We are salad lovers – either alone or with chicken or fish!
        Thank-you Olena for such simple, healthy but wonderful recipes! My husband ALWAYS knows when I fix something from your site! 🙂

        This was sooooo good. I took it to a dinner and ended up with ham. Went well. The slaw appeared to have a dressing and all were shocked when I told them it was slaw, chopped mango and parsley.

      4. I want to make this but am not feeling the basil and unfortunately I’m not a cilantro fan (taste like dish soap to me). What can I use in the place of basil or cilantro?

            This was very good. Though we did over shred the cabbage and cut the mango too small. Another winning recipe!
