This refreshing Cabbage Mango Slaw is infused with Caribbean Flavors. It started off being a humble side-kick for my Caribbean Shrimp Taco’s, but since then, has quickly risen in importance to justify it as a stand alone. I find myself making a big batch and using it on everything from buddha bowls, tacos, on sandwiches, or in wraps. Great for summer meal-prep and pot lucks and gatherings.
I love the healthy clean tropical flavors and crunchy texture. And it’s so versatile perfect as a healthy side salad for a summer BBQ, adding brightness to heavy meals. It’s delicious in pulled pork sliders, or on a crispy fish sandwich, or simply served alongside black beans and rice, for a healthy vegan dinner. It also can be made-ahead, and keeps for days! Simple to make, clean and detoxing, this vegan salad is one to add to your summer repertoire!
Look at all these fresh ingredients!
Make sure to pick a ripe mango that is NOT too soft, just barely ripe. Peel with a veggie peeler.
Cabbage, mango, onion, cilantro, jalapeno all go in the bowl with the orange zest, orange juice and lime juice, then just gently mix.
Serve as a side dish…. or try it in these flavorful Caribbean Shrimp Tacos!

- Slice or shred cabbage very thinly- Add to large bowl.

- Zest one orange and add the zest to the bowl. Add the juice of half the orange, and half the lime

- Taste and adjust salt, heat and citrus. Often I will squeeze in the other half of the orange.

I added sweet rice vinegar just a tad to taste. A side dish for smoked pork ribs and corn on the cob—— YUM
Perfect- a great addition!
So good. Delicious the day I made it but love the leftover too!
Great to hear!
Ii don’t like mango (the texture). Is there another fruit that i could sub?
I bet a little pineapple would taste good here?
Absolutely easy and delicious 😋 I made with jerk swai fish omg I could have eaten the plate it was so good. Thank you for sharing.
Will surely make again
I made this for supper tonight and we found it very refreshing and the lime and orange juice were a great taste next to our roasted turkey thighs! I did shortcut the recipe by using a bag of mixed coleslaw. I also added a teaspoon of toasted sesame oil along with extra virgin olive oil. I think this would be good on pulled pork. The vinegar really cuts through the fatty cuts of meat. Super easy too! Thanks.
This is delicious. I ate it for lunch several days in a row and then last night I made the Caribbean Shrimp Tacos recipe that uses this for the slaw. It was also great. Thanks so much.
so glad you liked this Melisa!
Family loved this recipe!
I make this salad all the time. We all love it. I eat it for lunch or dinner, and on occasion, even for breakfast. I usually top if with some roasted cashews for a little salty, crunchy contrast. Yum!
Used green cabbage and red pepper flakes, but otherwise followed the recipe. The perfect sweet-tangy-crunchy antidote to snowy February!
Great to hear!
You have listed cilantro as an ingredient twice, is there an ingredient missing? I’m wanting to make this tomorrow for dinner. Thank you!
Sorry and thanks for pointing it out… i fixed it. 😉
This recipe looks delicious, and I will be making it….. but I don’t know which cilantro amount to use. Could you please clarify? I’m sure it’s a typo.
I have made this 3 times in the past month. It’s so simple and healthy and satisfying. My family is getting a little tired of it but I could eat it every day.
I’m so glad you like it and thanks for sharing and reminding me it’s out there! It’s an oldie but goodie 🙂
Made this for dinner last night and we loved it! Wonderful combination of flavors and healthy! I could eat it every day!
Oh good! Yes, I really like it too…refreshing!
Thanks for sharing your thoughjts on Caribbean. Regards
