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!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage (½ of small purple cabbage)
  • 1 large mango (ripe but firm, not soft)
  • ½ cup cilantro chopped, thin stems ok
  • ¼ C finely diced or thinly sliced red onion
  • ½ to 1 jalapeno- finely chopped
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 orange (zest and juice)
  • 1 lime

  2. Peel mango with a vegetable peeler, then slice into thin strips, or cut into cubes and place in the bowl.

  4. Zest one orange and add the zest to the bowl. Add the juice of half the orange, and half the lime
  5. Add oil and salt and mix gently to combine.
  6. Taste and adjust salt, heat and citrus. Often I will squeeze in the other half of the orange.

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. You have listed cilantro as an ingredient twice, is there an ingredient missing? I’m wanting to make this tomorrow for dinner. Thank you!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    1. I’m so glad you like it and thanks for sharing and reminding me it’s out there! It’s an oldie but goodie 🙂

  8. Made this for dinner last night and we loved it! Wonderful combination of flavors and healthy! I could eat it every day!
