Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw

This is another recipe I found on Skinnytaste that I couldn’t resist. I adapted it a bit to work with what I had on hand. I was disappointed that I couldn’t find black sesame seeds anywhere because I think the slaw would looked even more beautiful with them. I loved the crunchy cabbage, carrots, and bell pepper with the sweet mango and tangy dressing. My kids didn’t say much about this slaw but they did eat nearly all of their portion which is great. My husband and I both loved it and had seconds. This cabbage mango slaw paired perfectly with the Asian Turkey Meatballs with Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce for a healthy and delicious meal!

Combine the rice vinegar, lime juice, soy sauce, and sesame oil together in a small bowl.  Whisk until well combined; set aside.

Combine the cabbage together with the carrots, cilantro, green onion, and red bell pepper in a bowl and toss together.  Add the sliced mango and sesame seeds then drizzle with the salad dressing.  Gently toss to combine. Serve immediately.  Enjoy.

    How gorgeous is this salad? I can’t wait to make this with the turkey meatballs.

    Pam- I agree that black sesame seeds would be a great addition to this salad, and it’s so frustrating when you want to use an ingredient and can’t find it! I stumble upon black sesame seeds every once in a while (Whole Foods usually has them), and when I see them I purchase them and store them in the freezer. I keep all of my baking nuts and seeds in the freezer to prolong their freshness and keep them from turning rancid. I’m sure you can purchase black sesame seeds online, but let me know if you want me to send you some! :-)

    I made both the salad and the meatballs last night. I had originally planned to have ravioli but when I saw these pictures, all my plans went out the window. Both recipes were great. My guy loved both. He’s a big cilantro fan and he loved the salad’s crunch. My only recipe comment was that when I used the 1/4 cup measure for the meatballs, I only got 10 so I redistributed the meat because I wanted 12! My last question is to myself – why does cabbage go ALL over the kitchen when I cut it up?!

    [...] compliment savory foods so well. Especially cabbage! I’ll be using one of my mangoes in this Asian Mango Slaw. If I get carrots in my box I’ll use those, and if I get kohlrabi, I’ll use that! [...]
